December 31, 1999


Oh my do you remember back then? Did you stockpile some canned food ? How about some extra cash ? We were afraid the whole world would come to a screeching halt. It was sort of a relief, here on the west coast as we watched other parts of the world ring in the new year and nothing drastic happened. And then eventually it was our turn....as the clock inched toward the magic hour of midnight~oh my gosh....the power stayed on and there were no catastrophes after all. The year 2000 was finally here.


It's been 10 years since that scary new years eve. A lot has happened, some good and some bad. And now another year is almost upon us. I pray that this new year will bring all of my Blogger friends peace, happiness and good health.
I'll be home but for those you that will be out celebrating~please celebrate responsibly.
P.S. I confess~I had a couple boxes of canned food set aside and $100 cash (in small bills) stashed just in case.

In the year 2000 things seemed so scary. I too had some things on hand should we need it. I was so relieved to wake that New Yars morning and find that everything still worked. Happy New Year to you too!

yep I do remember the hype about it; but you are right, once we realized other countries and parts of our country were handling the new year fine, it did take some of the stress off of us. we lived in Montana at the time so we always had a bit of an emergent stash around because of the weather

Hope you have a happy new year Linda! will be an exciting one for you and your family with your son getting married :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 to you and your family. May good health and happiness prevail this year. I too put away extra food and cash for the impending troubles back in 1999/2000. Back then... at midnight, here in the neighborhood, we heard what sounded like explosions and we thought the worst. Turned out a neighbor with fireworks was making all the noise.
