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*

    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!
