Bloody Weather

We got hit with a blizzard warning for the weekend and last night things were not looking pretty out the windows. Then about 6:30 PM, the power went out. Fortunately, our house has a fireplace so we were able to stay warm until the power came back on around 1:00 AM this morning. We trooped up to bed, got a few hours rest and then went outside to shovel the sidewalks. *blech* Days like today make me hate having a corner lot (twice the sidewalks to shovel). The sidewalks had 4 layers on them: snow, slush, ice and water. It made shovelling the walk even more hellish than usual. Fortunately we have kind neighbors who lent us their snowblower which got rid of the snow and some of the slush. But that left us with plenty of ice and water. A few hours of backbreaking labor later, we had the sidewalks as clean we were going to get them and came back inside. Gack. You have to love living here; otherwise you go insane. I have the pleasant advantage of not loving it, but keeping my sanity locked in a box so I never lose it. :p

Glad to hear your power came back on (yay fireplace!). Ours was out for only a short while; we weren’t even home at the time. I know Cath and Bryon’s is still out. Power at our old house is out, too, and we’ve called a service to take care of the massive branch-falls there. Whee. Not too bad here. Love shoveling that slush.

Glad to hear you guys made it through the “Storm of ’07” ok. Yeah, we know C&B are without power yet; as they’re staying with us tonight. Yeah, shoveling slush sucks.
