We had the winds of all winds yesterday night and, as a result, we have no power today. No power means no showers (the water is drawn from the well via a pump that requires electricity), no phone, no TV, no cable and, worse of all, no internet.
So, how am I posting? Well, we escaped our hydro-less house this morning and sought refuge at the nearest coffee house. Yes, I’m drinking coffee right now.
Yes, it’s delicious.
No, I’m not happy.
One look at the hydro website confirmed my worst fears. We aren’t going to have power until tomorrow night…at the earliest. Odds are, we won’t be able to blow dry our hair until well into next week.
Sure, they all like to point their fingers at the winds that blew but I have a suspicion about what really happened to our power.
In the interim, we’ll light candles and try to see if we can read a book or two by candle light. Wish us luck!
If we were having coffee, I’d ask you how yours is. I was at a coffee shop only yesterday and got a terrible cup of java that made me regret ordering it. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people who hates to complain…so I just added more milk and drank as much as I could. I wasn’t about to critique the efforts of the poor teen behind the counter.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I just finished reading ‘On Second Thought’ by Kristan Higgins and I absolutely loved it. It’s the second book I read from her that’s a little different from her usual books and I think it’s only an improvement. The last two books have been an almost mix of chick-lit and romance and I think Kristan Higgins has hit it out of the ball park with each of them. I hope she writes more like these and soon. They were awesome.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that our garage is almost done and I was actually able to put my Jeep inside today…and it stayed dry. My husband and I spend a delightful 20 minutes sweeping the inside and just enjoying the place. I know, sweeping? But the entire garage is empty, dry-walled and looks super clean and tidy. Sweeping it was an excuse to just admire every corner and inch.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that yesterday we had a terrible storm. So bad, I stayed up watching the radar online for the obvious tornado until I was so tired, I couldn’t care less if a funnel cloud or the Rapture was coming.
How about you? How are things on your end?

So, we’re under a blizzard warning. No idea what that means, except…well, probably more snow. I promised pictures…
Ocean doesn’t find the snow a deterrent. She just jumps into it.
Our bush…slowly getting uncovered.
I thought here you could see just how much snow we’ve gotten.
It seems we are still headed towards the worst part of the storm. More of the white stuff is promised tonight and tomorrow. Yeey.
Also, in order to not completely lose sight of the blog’s actual purpose, I will do a semi-respectable post tonight–not on snow.
We already had snow. Tons of it. Turns out Mother Nature didn’t think we had enough. Last night we got two feet more. Want proof?
Exhibit A: The bush that disappeared.
That was a bush. You can sort of still see it under the snow. Sort of.
Exhibit B: Trees covered by the white stuff.
Exhibit C: One crazy akita
She likes to shove her face into the snow. No idea why.
Once she’s covered in snow, Ocean likes to lay in the stuff…again, no idea why.
Oh, Guess what our forecast for tonight is? Massive snow storm.
If it’s epic (by Canadian standards), I promise pictures.
