Ice Storm

We made it through the ice storm with no problem. It snowed first, then sleeted, then rained and rained and rained.

I got all ready - lots of wood split and stacked by the wood stove, the bathtub filled with water, candles and flashlights put out, cell phone battery charged, and finger food cooked in advance. But, we were lucky and never lost power here for very long. Some of my friends in adjoining towns were without power all day. My friend, Shirley, who lives across the lake was without power for 24 hours. For some I hear it will be multiple days. Fortunately most people around here have wood stoves or generators.

Emily was ready to play once the sun came out.
