Still at home

We are still snowed in here! Off work three days in a row now. We did make it out last night and today but we didn’t go too far. Even the main roads are still pretty lousy and there are tons of trees, limbs and power lines that have fallen so it’s hard to tell what streets or businesses will be open and whatnot.

Basically, we got 2-3 inches of snow and then freezing rain on top of that. Then another snow storm that dumped another 2-3 inches on top of the ice. layer all within 48 hours. There are also I think 200,000 homes in the state without power and they are having a hard time restoring it because everything is covered with ice and it hasn’t been above freezing here in a few days now.

We’re getting a little restless but we’re safe, warm and definitely well fed. Unfortunately I have not gotten much exercise other than walking the dog (which is a workout in 5 inches of snow with ice in between) and some massive house cleaning that I did because I got bored ;-) But it’s hard to complain under the circumstances.

Hope wherever you all are that you are safe. We have some friends coming to stay with us tonight because they are without power. We were lucky this time (we lost ours for a week in August when we had a really bad wind storm) so we feel it’s only right to help out those who were not.

Sorry this blog has been lame this week, it will be better when things get back to normal around here!
