Thawing out while feasting.

When I did my snow day dance, I really should have clarified that I wanted a snow day with power.

I wasn’t able to get to work this morning. (Yay!) However, I lost power very early this morning and it didn’t come back on until around 11pm tonight. The downside of country living is that when I lose power, I also lose water and heat.

Thankfully, I thought ahead and filled up my washing machine with water last night. This allowed me to flush the toilet (via a bucket of water) today. I know, that’s TMI, but believe me: that was a huge deal!

I put all of my perishable food outside in the snow, so none of it spoiled. I also have a gas stove, so I could cook.

I spent today listening to the radio and knitting on my Fuzzy Feet. As the house got colder, I piled on more clothes. By the time the power came back on, I was wearing a T-shirt, two sweatshirts, sweatpants and two pairs of wool socks.

My camera batteries died before sunrise (and I obviously couldn’t recharge them), so I have no blizzard pictures. It was a doozy of a blizzard, though. There’s a snow drift in front of my house that is as high as the fence (four feet). The highway to my house is still closed, so I’m stranded at home.

However, I have heat, lights and water.

I have no complaints.

Here’s Friday’s Feast:

  1. Well, at least you do have the heat and all … and the doggie to keep you company.

    My parents are in the Denver area and they got more than a foot of snow yesterday, but nothing like what you have.

    Stay warm and cozy!
