Well, I am sick of winter. If I wasn't already sick of it, I am there now. We lost our power Tuesday morning just after midnight. I was already asleep when our fan and heater went off. Gene and I went around the house and made sure the kids were covered up and their doors were closed. All day we hung out in the LR and huddled around the wood stove, played board games and went to bed early. We cooked oatmeal and stew on the stove, too. Such fun. Today about 1p.m. it was restored. Yea! But our water is still frozen. So no showers again, flushing the toilet with water we stored up Tuesday night, no washing dishes. Hopefully it'll thaw out tonight.
