We had dinner with friends in town on Tuesday night
and when we left to drive home, the snow had just begun.
By the time we were 2 miles from home it was falling so thickly that we could hardly see to drive!
We woke up to a beautiful sight of 8" of lovely snow blanketing the fields and house.
We took Atta on one long walk down the lane,
but otherwise it was a perfect day to stay holed up inside
and enjoy the view from the comfort of the house.
Do you want to know one of my favorite things about the new house?
Yes, after just a few hours of snowfall,
our power went out and it's still out three full days later!
The generator is big enough to run the sewer (VERY important!),
well pump (almost as important!),
a hot water heater, the refrigerator, stove, microwave,
a few wall outlets (the coffee pot outlet!)
and scattered lights here and there in the house.
Despite the fact that we can't run our main heat,
the house is staying at a constant temperature
with just a little help from the space heaters,
that we're turning on and off throughout the day.
So we're warm and comfortable and not lacking for much.
I'm not crying yet over the fact that I can't do laundry and vacuum! :)
According to the BARC website there are only a few hundred people left without power,
but I refuse to complain.
It could be much much worse and we've very fortunate!
Off to bed....
My fingers are crossed that the power will be back on tomorrow!
