Here it is Sunday afternoon and I am not feeling at all rested and relaxed and ready for a new week. Perhaps that is because I just spent the last three hours on an OM email, Star Island registration, and helping Caitlin with snacks and cleanup for her OM group. Fortunately the OM (Odyssey of […]

I’ve snuck on to Annie’s blog to post this video of young Calvin after the recent snow… further antics can be found at Calvin dot com
This last storm was classified as blizzard, but it only gave us an additional six inches of snow which was on the very low end for our area. Uncle Bobby got almost another two feet. However, the wind gusts made it look really impressive as occasionally we couldn’t see the end of our driveway.
We have the power! It came back on just in time for the Super Bowl. And just before we left to watch it with the Pooles. While we had a bigger TV they had heat and chili. It was nice to come back to a warm house.
Most neighborhood streets have a single lane plowed […]
Sunday, 2:45 – Still no power. Even though Caitlin says, “Let there be light!”
We have fled the house to Panera for lunch, the internet, and an outlet to charge our phones. I’ve been writing posts that haven’t gone out so I’ll post them all now.
Sunday, 9:40 am – Still no power. Thankfully we have large southern facing windows so our living is relatively warm. It makes for a good spot for us all to sit and read. Unfortunately we have no newspapers, but Scotty has the Economist, Caitlin the second of the Percy Jackson books that John and I […]
Saturday, 7:30 pm – We miss electricity! The house is down to 61 degrees although by boiling water on the our gas stove I’ve warmed the kitchen up to a toasty 64 degrees. We’ve got lots of candles lit, Caitlin’s ipod playing on speaker, and books and sudoko.
Earlier we played John’s game of Dominion […]
Saturday, 11:20 pm - Okay, I’m ready for this to be over. The power has just gone out. Again. Foolishly we didn’t crank up the heat this morning so the house is currently at 66 degrees and now dropping.
When I started shoveling about 9:30 we were up to 13 inches. I think we’ve had […]
The storm got decidedly less fun when the power went out about 9:30 last night. So we rounded up the flashlights, handed out one per person, and went to bed. About 4:30 this morning I realized Socks had come to sleep with us which is unusual these days. Then I heard the heat going and […]
The snow is much more exciting in the news than in real life. Except for the walk John and I took around 4:00, we are inside and the snow is outside.
At that point it had been snowing consistently for about six hours and there was only an eighth of an inch of snow on […]
