We have just tried to make the best of it! Last night I made a fire in the fireplace and we roasted marshmallows!
We used those marshmallows to make smores....
which Southern Gentleman found very tasty!
We played a little bit...
then had a slumber party in our room. (Mainly because there is a gas fireplace in there and we lost our electricity from about 10:00pm until 2:30 am.) We stayed all toasty and warm!
Before we made it to bed, Lou helped me and we hung all the laundry in the washer to dry in the butlers pantry because we didn't know when the electricity would come back on and we didn't want mildewy clothes!
We woke up (bright and shiny early) and got some breakfast. As the sun began to rise and the snow began to fall, the tree damage became visable! Let's just say, I think our neighbors will be really glad they didn't go ahead and pull 10 feet further up in thier driveway!
Our trees took some hits, too! Fortunately, it just made a mess in the yard and didn't damage anything.
We will see what the rest of the weekend will hold...probably more snow and due to the flickering electricity a second ago, I'm wondering if we are headed for more power outages! Hopefully Doc will make it home although I'd almost rather him stay at the hospital than drive back and forth this weekend (at least the traffic should be minimal and we only live about 6 blocks away!)
