Alexandria Margaret ~ Photos Of Powerless Days ~ NFL Games


Good  28º morning... during the night we got a ton more snow! YIKES. And it's still coming down.Guess that means I won't be going anywhere AGAIN. Not driving in this mess....



Yesterday was a SUPER SUPER special day... My granddaughter Alexandria, aka Jelly Bean, celebrated her 21st birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL GIRL!!!!
                               Here with her "baby" brother, Jack^



The following photos from our "blackout" days....
Day 1 the 4th in the morning and afternoon....
 Dude out "melting snow" !!!!






And then I heated water on the wood stove to make tea..... heated some soup..... and melted a can of snow.....









Then on Thursday the 5th.... the sun was out and I opened the blinds and with the light I could read. Spent considerable time doing that....
These lanterns are good for finding your way around in the dark.... but not for reading...
 The Bruiser on the other hand climbed on top of the entertainment center and took a nap!



 In the afternoon I went to Dave and PJ's to get water in the jugs... My road was a little dicey, but OK.







Thank you for the concern from so many of you. Thankfully it was just a power outage. Now onto more snow/rain...................

Today's NFL playoff games:

BEAUTIFUL photos but I guess it's not so much fun tho. I will call you a pioneer woman! :)

We have those little colored flashlight where you push the rubber button on the end and you have nice light. I have used them for reading in power outages.

HAPPY HAPPY belated birthday to the 21 year old! Now she can join grandma in a glass of wine! :)

Too late to show the map to John. He left in the wee hours this morning. I am saying lots of prayers for his safety. He goes to Redding. :(

John really should have waited at least another week. It's nasty down there. POURING rain!!!! Hope he is safe, but it's not "hunting" weather. xo
