An update, and a little snowstorm history…

Well the power went out shortly after I posted the post below ( the night the storm hit).
We ended up with approx.  20 inches of heavy, wet snow.
The power was out for 5 full days.

Obviously I am updating this from behind schedule, now.  But I am going to go through the photos we took those days and post them on the date they were taken.   One of those nights while my husband, kids & I were sitting around without electricity listening to the radio, they played the top 100 hits from 1977.

1977 is the year I was born.  And when I was about the same age that my daughter Ella is now, a big winter storm hit leaving my parents with lots of snow and no electricity in January of 1978.   As I sat and held my baby, I thought of my parents holding and entertaining me, probably hearing those same songs on the radio.

Before I get started on our photos, I thought I’d share a couple of family photos from the storm in 78.

Snow Storm

If you don’t see anything new from me for a bit, our electric probably went out.  We are getting hit pretty hard right now.  (7 inches of snow in the past 3 hours and more coming down.)  We are supposed to have 12 to 20 inches by Sunday morning.  Here, this all started as rain.  The last time we had heavy rain like that, then ice, then heavy wet snow – we lost power for two weeks.  I pray that doesn’t happen this time.

But I just wanted to put that out there, in case you don’t hear from me for a bit.  So far our electric has flickered off and on, but is on at the moment.  But we aren’t even halfway through it yet and I don’t expect that to last.  We’ll see.  I don’t mind the snow too much, but with my breathing problems I hate loosing power.

It is certainly beautiful outside right now.

More Snow Photos

As you can probably tell, the snow photos in the earlier post I took from inside the house.  I wasn’t feeling up to going out and traipsing about in the snow that day.  But my husband was kind enough to offer to go around the property and take some shots for me.  🙂    And he took lots!   Here are the first of many I plan to share here:
