Great and Terrible Icestorm of 2007

Since most of the US is experiencing the coldest artic blast since 1996, I thought I would post some pictures of the 2007 icestorm.

We'll never forget this one! Six days without power! For us that meant no lights, heat, water, cooking, or flushing. Thank goodness for the fireplace! The house was still painfully cold but the food cooked in the fireplace was absolutely delicious.

Once the roads were clear, we spent days at the library, Pizza Hut and Walmart: which ever had power at the time. We still laugh about going in Walmart looking like refugees wearing the same mismatched multiple layers of clothes day after day. Of course, we scrambled for the piles of batteries and water ect along with all the other refugees!

If it hadn't been so cold, it would have been interesting living like the early settlers for a bit. Playing guessing games after dark was fun the first 3 evenings until our brains got too cold to think.

I'm so thankful to live in modern times!!
