Our mailbox and street at 9 am. It kept snowing all day.
Our power went out this morning at 2:50 a.m. I know that was when it was because I was awake. I don't know why I was awake, but I saw a brilliant flash. Then another. Then I heard all the surge protectors beeping so I got up and turned them off, called the power company to report it and went back to bed.
By this morning the snow was up over my husband's bumper. Our power just came back on at 6:06 p.m.
Praise the Lord for people who work for the power company in near-blizzard conditions to try to keep us warm. The funny thing is that we had just moved all blankets, pillows and bedding to the basement because it was warmer. We figured we'd be sleeping down there.
Relax everyone, the budgie is unfazed.
