2009 Ice Storm

Words cannot describe what our area has been through the past 2 1/2 weeks. We were without power from January 27 until February 9. We were lucky enough to stay with my mother who had a wood burning stove - everyone at our end of the state was without power at least one day - some still haven't gotten theirs turned on. These pictures are at my mother's house. Jeff stayed at our house making sure everything was okay and checking on us from time to time.

Mom (Nanny) cooked meals for us for three days on her wood burning stove. We learned that you can pop popcorn on a stove also. The kids thought that was great!

We were able to enjoy the snow a little. But we are sure glad to be home with power!

Tip: Have a BIG puzzle on hand in case the power goes out. It's a fun activity to do together. This one will be used for a neat Christmas decoration when it is all glued together.
