I am actually doing this post from my phone because this major storm caused a power outage that broke my modem. I am horribly sad I have no home internet at the moment, and probably wont for a week. I have never done a blog post from my phone so this is new to me.
So Saturday afternoon around 2:30pm the snow started to fall in my area. It was coming down hard and quick. After about 6 and a half hours all the trees in my yard were starting to snap and the one out front broke and fell inches from my house.
8 hours into the storm, the thing I was worried about happened. We lost power. It was a pretty impressive light show oitside as the transformer blew. I have to say we were lucky. Many others lost power hours before, and some still don't have any. My daughter woke up at 3am because she was cold. Let me tell you, she's impossible to sleep with. I got hit and kicked more times than I can count. She moves around so mu h in her sleep.
By 7:30am it was so cold inside I could actually see my breath. My hubs told me he was sending his uncle to come get me because he at least has a pellet stove for some heat. I decided to go out and sit in my warm car with my daughter to wait. While I was in the car the power came back on so we didnt end up needing to leave after all.
I am fortunate that my power outage was pretty short. I know a lot of people who are still without power, and could be for days. It seems petty to complain about not having internet. It's sad how dependent we really are on it. We don't even think about it until we don't have it.
I hope that the thousands of people still without power are safe and will get their power back soon. It was hard for us and it was only a few hours mostly overnight.
Also my daughters Birthday party had to be canceled, but we had a small get together and she was very happy.
