Hidden account number contest


Congratulations to Herbert


Sprague for recognizing his number in last month’s issue. The other number belonged to John Crotts. We have hidden two account


numbers somewhere in the articles in this newsletter. The numbers will always be enclosed in parentheses and will look similar to this example (XXXXXX). If you recognize your account


number, all you have to do is give us a call on or before the 8th of the current month and we’ll give you a credit on your bill for the amount stated. This month’s numbers are worth $25 each. Happy hunting!


1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree 9 ounces cinnamon chips 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Preheat over to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.


Mix spice cake mix, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon chips together in a bowl until cake mix is completely moistened; add nuts and stir. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups to about 2/3-full.


Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.


Cooking tip: When you start mixing, you will think there aren’t enough liquid ingredients to absorb the cake mix. Just keep mixing. Don’t over bake! When baked properly, this is a moist, delicious muffin.

Prepare a winter survival kit


S


evere winter storms often bring heavy accumulations of ice and snow, which can lead to downed power lines and extended outages. NWEC’s crews will work hard to restore power, but having a winter survival kit on hand is a smart idea. • Food: Store food that does not re- quire cooking, such as canned goods, crackers, dehydrated meats and dried fruit. Keep a large supply of water on hand. Ready.gov recommends five gallons per person. • Medication: Be sure to refill all prescriptions in the event of a major power outage. • Identification: Keep all forms of identification handy, such as driver’s licenses, photo IDs and social security cards. Bank account information and insurance policies are also good to have on hand. • Other items: First Aid Kit, blan- kets, flashlight, battery-powered radio and extra batteries.
