Loving My Life as Wife, Mother and Grandmother

Wednesday, January 28, 2009


Well, our winter storm is finally over; but left much destruction behind. We didn't have any power last night and they say there are 70,000 or more people in our area without power. They say it may be into next week before everyone gets power back on. I don't know how long ours will stay on...I'm hoping that it does. The trees and power lines are still falling from the major weight of the ice. The temps are well below freezing so it will be a while before we thaw out. It sounded like something from a scary movie here last night. The sky was lighting the whole house up green and blue from transformers blowing. Then we could hear the loud booms from the transformers and the trees crashing and booming to the ground. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep last night. I am glad that even though we have a huge mess to clean up in the backyard, nothing landed on our house. We will definately have to get a chainsaw to get it cleaned up. For all of my friends to the east of here where the storm is headed....Please stay safe! Jerelene
