But! I did decide that I should go shake the snow off of the trees, and I did, from underneath the trees, and then I wore the majority of the snow.... but the trees are safe.
About 9 in the morning we lost power, and heat, and running water, and lights..... and I just assumed that the power would be on rather quickly. And I. was. wrong.
And do you know what country people with no lights what-so-ever do to entertain themselves?? Beware - I did take a few photos...
We told stories of Donkey and Shrek in the dark.... but the flash worked well!
And we pulled out the guitar and sang songs that we didn't quite know. I even have a video, however it is pitch black.
and we put longjohns on under our clothes and curled up on couches trying to stay warm.
Did I mention that it got to 13 degrees outside?
Thursday morning it was 45 in the house.
Thank goodness I am a quilter.... we used them ALL
And just about the time I was ready to give up and drive to town to sit at a starbucks, or the library, or even in the car to stay warm....
The power came back on!
Don't forget - today is the last day to enter in the
I'll be back.....
