Our first significant snow of the season. It was beautiful. We had just left piano lessons when the snow started on Thursday afternoon. It snowed big, beautiful flakes until bedtime. Right as I served dinner, the power went off. We had been watching the usual sparks in the trees from the power lines for about an hour. Then Jack saw large sparks as our lights and heat went off.
So, we bundled up, and sat in the dark, playing games for as long as our batteries held out, or read books by candle light. The girls added sleeping bags to their beds for extra warmth. I wore a sweater, a sweatshirt, 2 pairs of socks and sweat pants. I was so warm that I ended up discarding the socks and sweatshirt. It only got down to 52 or so in the house. It wasn't too bad. I grew up with one wood/coal burning stove in the center of our house. We had many cold winter mornings. It makes for fond memories.
Thankfully, a crew from Kentucky came by in the afternoon and fixed us right up! I am so thankful for our electricity. I'm thankful it was only a day. I cannot imagine all those people who suffered through the hurricane a couple of months ago. Our inconveniences are so trivial in comparison.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
