Dear Winter...part 2

So our power went out at 6pm. We had planned ahead and purchased propane for the little heater that's in the living room...minor detail, we didn't test it. Murphy, that darned Murphy struck again. Overall, I was comfortable all night. The kids were fine. 1 piled high with 4 blankets and a cat and 1 with 3 blankets and a dog. I on the other hand had a cranky butt with bad knees that lock up when they get cold. It was a long night. ;)

We awoke to beauty...pure beauty. And lights and heat that came on after 13 hours. The house was at a whopping 47 degrees. We decided to take a walk and survey the damage. Because what I forgot to mention was that all night long, limbs and branches were falling from the 4 HUGE trees that surround the house. It could have been so much worse that just having no heat! Thank you God!

I will admit though, I considered looking for helmets!

But the picture that was painted for us all night long was just amazing.

Ice coated just about everything.

They're still not happy, but mainly because they're penned up...and because I forgot to bring them treats. ;)

Knowing that the state was just about shut down over this storm, I figured we'd be stuck for days. We were luckily enough to get out and about later in the day!

So much beauty.
