Hammered

I am not exaggerating, the snow storm walloped us worse than the two hurricanes we endured this year.  There are trees down everywhere in our valley (pretty dangerous to even walk dogs right now because of the wires down), news said 200,000 without electricity; about 1/2 of those (including our home) have been restored.  Other towns outside the city have to wait for power possibly until Wednesday.  Unfortunately, we also lost the food in our freezers. 

It got so cold that we could see our breath when we or the dogs exhaled while we were in our house. I'm grateful we have power now and have said some prayers for the poor people who still don't.  It's going down to 25 F tonight.  You can see some stuff on this website of our local tv channel.

 I've set the temp up because we could actually lose power again.  So if i'm not on, you'll know that we lost our phone line which is hanging pretty low:
If we can actually keep our power, I'm going to stay home anyway.  There are so many accidents because so many of the traffic lights are broken and the towns and electric company just can't keep up with it.

Fortunately, it's going to get warm.  It should be interesting to see how my plants faired:

Have a happy week and be safe!

Ooooh! Stay safe! (Although it's ironic that you could see your breath INSIDE and yet lost all the food in the freezer...) Stay warm and stay safe! (I've heard that cuddling with poodles can help you stay warm! *grin*)
