I made coffee and filled a couple of thermos bottles and whipped up some soup and put in another thermos and had no sooner put the dishes in the sink when the power went off. Good planning Keewee I said to myself, we will be Ok for a few hours we have hot soup and coffee, and a big propane heater to keep us warm.
I also had a feeling my boss would call and say the spa would be closed for the day, and to stay at home, she did, and I was only too happy to stay off the icy roads.
Getting towards evening on Monday and still no power, and more snow, grumble mumble. I don't mind the snow, what I do mind is that we do not have any power.
Tuesday dawned sunny but very cold, and still no stinkin' power. This was getting to be very tiresome even though we had food and were somewhat warm. This power outage has been one of the worst in years. Usually the power would be off one or two hours.
Th only time I went outside today, was to feed the birds, and as I stepped out the front door this little woodpecker was so busy finding his breakfast, that he let me get very close to take his picture.
The power finally came back on at 8:08pm this evening. I did the *Happy dance* 36 hours with no power when it is very cold is no fun.
