babY it's cold outside...

last night all the kids were in bed and we were watching the news and our power goes out. it blinked a couple of times and then completely out! we thought...that is strange. opened our door to notice the entire block was out. need i remind you, it's winter and it has been very cold the last couple of days. no problem right? we got out flash lights and candles. then we thought...HEAT! now haleigh is up and scared. i went and checked on the boYs...all sound asleep and i put their blankets back on. as we did not know when the power would come back on. it's now 11:30 and power has been out and hour...getting a little cold. haleigh got in bed with me and galen decided he would go check things out. the entire two towns were out!!! cops were on main street checking business and were hoping power would be on soon. you don't realize how much everything is connect until the power goes out. think about it... lights, alarm clocks, clocks, stereos, tv, computer, phones, phone chargers and HEAT! as i thought to myself...welcome to austin's world. so little miss and i get all snuggled into bed and i am asleep and my cell starts vibrating. galen said "think you are getting a text" i said no it's a call and who would be calling me at midnight. it was my sister in law. we had been online and i told her the power was out. my computer battery died so she had no idea what was going on. she was calling to check on us. so here i am half asleep, and i was trying to tell her we were ok and then...blink...POWER! needless to say we are all fine and warm. then today at work we had power surges all day long. very frustrating when the computer is a big part of your work. i had a dental appointment today and thought i better call and check on it to see if we were still on. all was a go, so off to the dentist i went. did i forget to mention it has been SNOWING all day!!! it was so nice to see the white stuff falling down. it is pretty late for this being our first snow. here is a picture i took of my house as i left for work this morning at 39 degrees. yes, it is still snowing and we are to receive more. i wonder if we will have no school tomorrow. that would be fun other than i would have to WORK. i better get dinner going. have a great night. i know i will be snuggling in my blankey tonight cause...baby it's cold outside! *hugs*

So did they ever figure out what was the cause of the power going out? Luckily we don't really lose power out here too much. When I lived in Missouri it was a once every other week occasion in the spring and winter from storms (ice and thunderstorms). So even though it isn't fun, I could handle it growing up. We would just light our fire and everyone slept in the family room. Too bad we don't have a fireplace here! Next house, right?
