power failure.

031417 storm

Well, fuck.

We lost power for 4.5 hours today. I know it’s not that bad… it could have been much longer. One year when storms were especially bad (and frequent), my mom was without power for 8 days.

But 4.5 hours without power… everyone home… husband had no work… kids had no school… and I had no break. It felt like a lot longer than 4.5 hours.

I don’t know why I’m sharing this…. I think I’m officially sick of winter.

Now to [try to] catch up… 57 emails… *sob*


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    We had flickering lights this afternoon but didn’t lose power, thankfully. It was hard enough being cooped up!

    Same weather here. Even posted a few videos of our blizzard yesterday (on going) on IG. Like you, I can’t stand winter, especially since the storm of 1998 where we lost power for 10 days! Beautiful photo!

  4. That blows. We had an ice storm a few years back that had is without power for two weeks. Living rurally, we were not a priority in getting it back on. Damn, it was awful. 😕

    The worst of this storm missed us. But what we did get was more in the ice/sleet form and we were worried about power too. Fortunately it stayed on. Sorry you had such a miserable time of it. Just when we were starting to think spring… And it’s fucking cold again! come on!

  6. Oh, man, that’s awful. We got just a little snow, nothing too awful. But, jeez, it’s March and almost spring already!
