lights where are you?!

We lost power at 12 (noon) yesterday and still have nothing. We had a severe wind storm with up to 60 mph winds and it knocked down 4000 powerlines, leaving over 600000 people without power. 

We have been hoping that the power would come on any minute but nope, hours have gone by and nothing, not even a flicker!

Yesterday and today it wasnt so bad weather wise but we did wake up freezing this morning so we ran to the living room and sat by the fire.

Tomorrow its supposed to be colder in the twenties and low teens and i have to keep a baby warm. The fire is nice but it gets smokey sometimes and she does not like it. Plus the fire only keeps one part of the house warm.

I want to sleep in my own bed. I want to lay on my own couch. I want a fucking hot shower. 

They said 90% of people will get their power back on by sunday. Fucking Sunday! Theres no way I want to wait through the weekend, through cold weather for my power to come back on.

Looked into hotels and they are all booked up or really expensive. WTF. This has been the longest two days ever. I want it to be over already. 

Lets hope the power comes on tomorrow and we dont freeze.

  1. Wow … that sucks, especially with a baby! And if youre not set up for it! We used to live in a town, right under one of our biggest mountains in NZ – where the power went off regularly during winter … like weekly and stayed off for days. But every house there was set up with a wood burner, wrapped pipes (so the water didnt freeze), gas and generators.
    I hope it comes back on real soon!!

    • yess it does and we are definitely not set up for it or even expected it. Oh wow thats crazy i would hate that lol. we tried to get a generator but they were all sold out, everywhere 🙁. thanks hope so too!
