Mark and I enjoyed the snow and survived the power being out. I’m thankful that Mark is a very prepared guy and that we have a ton of camping gear. We set up camp in the living room, stayed warm, read a lot by propane lantern, and cooked on grill and propane stove. The only thing I didn’t love about it all was the sound of falling branches and ice. It kind of felt like we were in the middle of a snow storm war against our house and yard. But, no one was hurt and nothing was damaged so I’m thankful for that.

It’s nice to be back to normal. I think the thing I missed the most was my workouts at the Y (I did stuff at home though) and music. Sky and I listen to music all day long, all different sorts, and we take dance breaks all the time, and I really missed that. Since we didn’t have power Friday Mark had to go into work instead of work from home and it was sort of scary being home alone hearing all the ice crash down out of the trees. Every time any would hit the windows or deck Sky would freeze and her eyes would get giant and she would look at me like what the heck! I put some effort into being silly and singing to her to distract her from the commotion going on outside.
I’m supper thankful I am not working outside the home…it made it supper easy to make the call not to try and drive anywhere and not have to get ready by candlelight.
