I am writing this on my ipod. We have no power at our house, and we haven’t since Friday night. Saturday night I was awake most of the night because I was afraid that the gusts of wind, some up to 75 mph, were going to come through my window or land a tree on our roof. Thankfully, we had no damage.
Our house is only 42 degrees inside and tonight’s temperatures outside will be in the teens. We are concerned about pipes freezing.
We are warm at my parents house and this place has become a make shift shelter, people sleeping on the floor, on couches, or wherever we could find a warm place. We were thankful for a HOT drink when we got here. Coffee never tasted so good. My dad and the guys have been looking for generators today. (We are afraid that our pipes will freeze and burst.)
The cousins are all enjoying being snowed in together and today at about noon, some more friends came in for shelter half frozen like popsicles. We scurried to get them warm drinks and a hot lunch.(cooked in the grill) We sat around the fireplace talking and visiting. In a mobile home park where older folks we love live, fire trucks were aiding older folks who were extremely cold in their homes. In total, our area got nearly 20 plus inches of snow. Some drifts were closer to 28″. We are thankful for safety and warmth right now. Please pray for those who still have no power and who aren’t expecting to have it until Thursday. Here are some pics that I took on our way to my parents. Sorry they are blurry!
