SURVIVAL....a few tips.

It takes a crazy special kind of person to live
in sub-zero temperatures.
There are benefits to living where it gets to -33 degrees.
(See yesterdays post.)

We don't grow cockroaches.
Or big spiders.
Or snakes.

In fact, some of our people are short.

I am terrified of all of the above....
except the short people.
(Cuz I'm a short people.)

In fact, Lisa Loo just may have a point.
People living here will live longer, ya know how freezing extends the shelf life of food and all.

I have learned a few things about surviving here.

Not only can you survive...

...you can THRIVE!

Amen.

Perfect! I think we need a Utah version too!!! :)

Lori Killian said...

This must be why I almost died everytime I stepped outside this week, I didn't have chocolate! I must go to the store as soon as possible!

Kirsten said...

LOVE this idea! Did it last year for a few friends. I need to do it more often! Here's looking on the bright side; it's supposed to be in the 20's this weekend!!

Momza said...

awww how neat is that?!
I need one too.

g.suzie said...

Ok, Where do you sign up for those!
Is that your 'brain child' very
clever idea. . .
Stay warm & see you in the spring.
I know why we needed food storage,
so we won't have to leave the house all winter!

Only you Tauna, Only YOU!!!
Stay warm my friend!

Scrappy Girl said...

Oh that kit could help you survive anywhere! I can't believe how cold it is there. Brrrr.

just call me jo said...

That's like a little fly-fishing tackle box filled with chocolate. How cute! My daughter (who went to school at Ricks back when it was Ricks) would love it. She calls Rexburg "muck-luck-land." I won't even mention that AZ is planning temps in the 70s by the weekend. I promise I won't tell you that.

Kristina P. said...

You want to send some of that my way?

Victoria said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE:) haha!

Barbaloot said...

If there really are no snakes and you promise I can get one of the survival kits, I may just have to re-think my statement from the last post:)

gigi said...

Oh, I love it!!!
You just have all the answers!
Love ya, stay warm.

Mikki said...

That is utterly adorable!! I want one. We need survival kits in Vegas too. Of course, in the summertime the contents would be melted all over the place.

DCHY said...

Very cute. If you are not afraid of short people, then you must be afraid of tall people. ;)

Lisa Loo said...

I think you live longer too.

You know, like a freezer extends the shelf life of food???

Between that and the chocolate I bet you are looking at 100 years old at least! :0)

Saimi said...

Awesome!! Maybe living there isn't so bad after all!!

Stephanie Faris said...

Oh that looks yummy! It's been pretty cold here, but not that cold. The funny thing is, we'll have a 50 degree day, followed by a 35 degree day. It's enough to drive you crazy!

M-Cat said...

What an awesome kit! That would help anyone survive anywhere!

Emmy said...

Lol! Yes freezing can make thongs last a very long time. This post is awesome and I want one of those kits!

lifeinredshoes said...

My kind of survival kit!

Mumsy, Chancy and Company said...

Now that is a very yummy looking survival kit. We have snow and ice maybe I better get one. Hugs

Sherrie said...

Love that survival kit. I need to get me one of those for Montana!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love that survival box!

T said...

awesome survival kit!!!

the St. George version would have to have less chocolate... (and no, not because of ME - the heat does not treat chocolate well)

Mamarazzi said...

so funny...i admire super crafty people. i try but fail a lot!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I guess chocolate can make anything better, but I am glad I don't have to find out about sub zero temperatures. Hope it warms up soon.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

How funny! You always make me smile. I am short too...lol
Girl I just read your post below this one and nearly passed out went I saw you temps in your car dashboard. Good gosh are you kidding me. Like I said in my last post it takes courage to live up North. hahaha
Hang in there spring is coming.
If you have not entered my One World One Heart giveaway be sure and do.
Stay warm my friend ...
Love ya
Maggie

Connie said...

Now I understand why you can thrive in those cold temperatures!!! Chocolate is a cure all for everything...right?
Spring is on it's way...we hope!

Doran & Jody said...

What a great idea!!

My kids would love this.
Ah...heck! I should make one fer myowmself!

Giggles said...

That's my kind of survival kit!

ain't for city gals said...

You go girl! I could use that during the summer in Arizona but would have to keep it in the fridge..

Valerie said...

That would get me through anything! :)

DeNae said...

And MY daughter was on the receiving end of that kit! Tauna, you are the best. (You get a shout-out in my latest post, in case you want something to read while keeping your cankles elevated. Stop falling down!)

Qait said...

Tauna! This is Qait Wahlquist-- and guess what? I found your blog through DeNae's, isn't that funny? I had no idea I knew you. I mean that I knew the blogger of the Garden of Egan. :)
Just thought I'd mention I popped by!
I miss Rexburg...even all its coldness!
