Christmas, Snow and Electricity!

Well hello there world!   It’s been an interesting couple of days to say the least.  There’s been Christmas…

Christmas was perfect!   My family ended up getting together a little early that day because we were expecting some bad weather…

And this is where the fun begins….  We were expecting some bad weather and boy did we get some.  First it started to rain and then it turned into freezing rain, which started to stick to the trees.  It did this for a few hours and then later that night it turned into snow….

Yes it was beautiful.  Yes we had a white Christmas.  Yes we lost power.  That part wasn’t too much fun…

 

Christmas day night we lost power for a bit, but it did come back on in time for us to go to bed.  About 5:30 the next day (the 26th), we lost power again and this time it stayed off.  No electricity, no phone lines, and no internet.  The good thing?  We had heat and hot water!!  Honestly, being without tv, cell phones and internet wasn’t all that bad.  The bad thing?  I used to think that candle light was a romantic thing.  Nope, not anymore.  When you eat, clean, pee, and talk by candle light, it actually can get a bit old.  Winking smile

 

As of right now we have power….. have for a few hours now, but we are expecting more freezing rain tonight.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t loose power. 

 

Welp, that’s about it!  I hope you have a great night!
