The weather man said there was going to be an ice storm and just like before with the 14 in of snow he was right! Durn it...I would have liked him to be wrong!
We lost our power about 8am and Ben and I ate some breakfast to the morning light. He did some homework reading as I went out and scraped the truck in case we went anywhere. I also shoveled the sidewalk, again, to make sure there was a clear path for Ben. Came inside to a warm Starbucks coffee my brother delivered and then cleaned up the house a bit.
Ben beat me by one point in the game Sorry but I think he cheated...I want to think he did but of course he didn't!
As I looked outside I saw branches down everywhere. The trees were loaded with ice! Beautiful bit you didn't want to be standing anywhere near them! Remember in the last post how I said when we were coming home yesterday and a tree branch hit the back of the truck?? I didnt think that it did any damage until I saw it today...hopefully insurance will cover OT with no deductible!
Later in the afternoon we went to my older brothers house. He pretty much lives the furthest out of town but they had power! We chilled, ate and played games.
We are now home in bed with piles of blankets! Is it normal to see your breath when youre in your bed?? Well Ben must be warm and fine because he's currently talkin in his sleep and he never does this! I have candles lit and will be using a head lamp soon to read a bit as I warm up!
If I could move the candles closer to keepe from seeing my breath I would! We thought about a hotel but they either didn't have power or they were full!
Checked the power company am they said parts of the city were to dangerous to work on so expect to be out of pourer for 3-4 days! If this is the case I might just have to pack our bags and fly to Hawaii!! Seriously! A few positives is that we have hot water, our power bill will be cheaper...ha, I'm a money pincher when it comes to heat, and I can wear comfy clothes and no make-up for many days!!!
I haven't figured out how to post photos from my phone to the blog so I will update those later!
Pray we don't have to wait 3-4 days for power! If that's the case we may turn into icicles and yall will have to come defrost us! I am praying we will wake up in the morning and the house will be warm!!
