Like, we are literally without power. (& heat & water, because we need electricity to have the rest of the trifecta).
An ice storm swept through on Sunday, causing massive power outages in SW MI. Luckily, we have friends with power who are generous enough to let us take their water & electricity — all while enjoying their nice, warm 65 degree house.
(On a related note, this is the second friend’s house I’ve showered at in the 1.5 years we’ve lived here. We continually borrow things from the generous people around us… I am starting to wonder if we are THOSE friends. You know? Total moochers. Sigh.)
We have probably 3-4 trees that are either partially down or completely down, so it looks like JT will have fun with the chainsaw this spring. (More photos to come when I’m not mooching off of someone else’s computer/internet).
Rumor has it we’ll be powerless until Thursday. Cross your fingers that we get it back sooner… I miss my internet! (Srsly. Out of all that we’re missing, the internet is what I feel most deprived of. I can put on another sweater for warmth, melt snow for water, but internets? I cannot fix.)
Suggestions & advice on how to best avoid freezing pipes and/or dogs is welcome.
