Yuck….boo…..hiss…etc. etc. etc.
So, if you recall, yesterday, even though we were unable to travel to the rv show, my blog entry was in celebration of rain and melting snow and just generally the fact that it was March and hopefully spring. Well, when we went to bed it was raining really hard, and then it got colder, and at some point during the night rain turned into ice, and ice turned into snow, and when we woke up this morning, we had a cold house and no power.
What happened to our nice clean driveway?
A picture of the back yard for a change!
Our snow drifts are climbing again!
So I had to go off to work, and the roads were terrible, and it was still snowing cats and dogs, so Harry was very nice and drove me to work, and dropped me off. He had to stay home to keep our house warm! Two years ago, we had an ice storm and the power was out for several days, so we decided that we needed a generator to cover any such situations in the future! Today was the first day we had to use it.
But we were so glad that we bought that generator back when we did. It came in so handy today.
Harry took all these pictures for me today!
By the time the end of the day came, I really wanted a shower. And we weren’t sure how long the power would be out, so after Harry picked me up from work, we went to Planet Fitness and used the showers in their locker rooms. Guess that membership came in handy for something!
Here we are “roughing” it… (AKA no television)
and Harry hooked me up with internet through my phone.
He’s so handy to have around – I think I’ll keep him!!
And now after this, a-hem…interesting day, I am happy to report that as I was writing this blog entry just now, the power came back on!!!! Thank goodness. As the temperatures are supposed to be in the single digits tonight, Harry was preparing to get up every few hours throughout the night to warm our house back up. I am so glad that won’t be necessary after all.
OK, Spring you can come back any time!
