Well, here were are on the other side of a history making storm. We made it through Nemo and thankfully did not lose our power. We ventured out into the yard yesterday for a bit to check things out despite the crazy winds that continued to drift the snow. Its hard to tell what the final total was for where we live, but there is well over a foot.
I was able to take some video on my iPhone with these handy gloves my mother-in-law had given me last Christmas. If you want to keep your hands warm but still be able to navigate your phone I highly suggest grabbing yourself a pair. I had completely forgotten about them until T.J. dug them out of my winter accessory basket. Yay!
We went back outside today for much longer. The wind has finally settled down and the sun is shining. Tomorrow’s weather looks a bit interesting as an ice and rain storm is forecasted.
My parents, who live in Rhode Island, lost their power until late last night. They didn’t have heat, but could cook with their gas stove. They didn’t think the storm was too bad as they lived through the blizzard of 1978. They got over a foot of snow and are just starting to dig out today. Their biggest complaint was not having any coffee! I told my mom that she should keep some instant coffee on hand, but its hard to convince someone that instant is a good solution when they are so addicted to Dunkin Donuts and Honey Dew coffee.
What would be the one thing you wouldn’t be able to go without if you lost the power?
