Lost power for 31 hours and 14 inches of snow

Monday, October 31, 2011

REALLY????????? Who would have thought that the end of OCTOBER we would have 14 inches of snow and be left out in the cold. AND to cancel Halloween? That is crazy, There is so many lines down everywhere you go. We have a few trees in the back yard that look horrible as they have lost many limbs that are on the ground. So of these limbs are HUGE and need a chainsaw to cut them up. We haven't even had the leaves fall off the tree yet to rake them so they are on top of the snow. It is supposed to be 60 here tomorrow. We went to a friends house last night to cook our meat so it wouldn't go back and they didn't have any water. So it was a good exchange. I did have daycare kids show up today because they don't have power and ours came back on about 3am. I was happy to help them out so the kids be warm and have a hot meal. The parents were going to work to try and see how things were. One set of parents were on the hunt for a generator and was going to RHode Island or even New York to get one. Crazy around here. At this time most of the town is getting power back on but some will have to wait a few days as the wires are on the ground. Driving to my friends house last night have the road was block because of down trees and power lines. Looks like a tornado went through the town. Well onto recovery. I am hoping that all this weird weather is done I dunno what else can go wrong but I don't want to find out.
