We Have Power Again!

Yup, I'm sitting in a warm and well lit house! On Saturday, October 29, we were hit with a Nor'easter and we lost power about six o'clock. Out side you could hear the trees popping, cracking, and crashing to the ground! We had an unusually warm hot  fall this year so the trees have held on to their leaves. Leaves on trees and wet heavy snow results in very dangerous conditions. 
Mark and I went to bed and suddenly we heard a extremely loud crash! Got up and looked out our window and saw that part of a maple tree had fallen. Both Mark and James went outside to survey the damage, they kept saying "You got to come see this!"  Nope, not me, it was  too scary out there! I woke up the next morning at 5:30 to take the dogs out. It was eerily quiet, no sound, not even birds chirping.








Six days without power, made me appreciate the simple things in life.
There are still many people without power tonight. Please keep them in you thoughts and prayers.

I got mine back late Wednesday. There are still some in NH without. Sure glad I have a woodstove.

Oh my word! What a snow and ice storm. So happy that your power is back on and I sending warm wishes to those who are still without.
Here in Texas, we are still in a drought, add strong winds to that and sooner or later we are going to blow away.... LOL
YOu take care.

I'm glad to hear you are safe and warm. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I know we were lucky to be only 4 days without power. My parents and one of my brothers had power restored on Thursday night, my other brother on Friday night. My prayers are with those still waiting for electricity.

one time on whidbey island when it looked like this, we went seven days....plus we were on a community water well that was driven by electricity and we had no water as well. It was so miserable...after that when a storm was coming, I would fill up the bathtub so we could at least flush the toilet....
I am glad you made it thru! it looks like a storm blew in for sure...
