Day 3 of No Power

Yes folks we are still trapped with no power now going on 3 days. This is why....

Even though it looks pretty with all the snow, it also had a heavy layer of ice which caused thousands of trees to break. Thus causing over 200,000 people to loose power when they took out the power lines. We have been living off our generator which allows me to keep the TV, internet on occasion, refrigerator, & portable heater running.We wake up to 52 degrees in the house in the mornings, brrrrrrr is an understatement. Last night we finally headed to post with Banyan in tow to shower, eat real food & sleep in a warm bed. Thank you for a good friend willing to house this crazy bunch! She has three babies of her own & one deployed husband- so yikes we had a house full!
Power is not expected to return until Monday or Tuesday at the earliest. So we will be escaping tomorrow to post to the bowling alley for some fun , food, & HEAT!! Then back home to shiver some more. The kids had fun at first playing legos, reading books, & camping out in the living room. But the novelty has worn off and we just want our power back. I know the power company is doing it's best- but I can't help but wish it was quicker.Oh well- if you don't hear from me for awhile I may have actually turned into a human Popsicle-haha .
