A Blizzard Called Nemo

We've been off the grid since Friday at about 6:45 pm. Literally off the grid with no power or running water for 107 hours now. Here's why:

Our driveway on Saturday
I wasn't even able to receive calls on my cell phone. Texting worked in certain parts of the house, but barely. Luckily, we have a woodstove to keep warm and a gas stove on which to cook. But we finally gave up last night and moved to a relative's house when their power came back on.

Needless to say, blogging is not a top priority right now. I have more important things to manage. This post will need to serve for today and tomorrow's "Wordless Wednesday" post. Hopefully I'll be able to post again by Friday. 

In the meantime, we are safe and warm. I hope all of you are too.


  1. Wishing you and your family the best.. Hopping you are back in the 21st century soon! (We got our power back around 10pm last night but parts of 02770 r still frontiering it.) Take care,.Erin B

    1. Thanks, Erin! We finally got power on Tuesday afternoon. Then we were lucky enough to fly to CA for a wedding where the weather was sunny and almost 70 degrees! We missed that second storm.
