Living inside a freezer

There's lovely sunshine today beaming down on the hard-frozen landscape; pretty white contours, but biting to the skin. The winds have been so strong the past few days we could only hope against a power outage; this year we have been lucky thus far. We didn't have to drive anywhere, unlike thousands who got trapped by their evening homeward commute. There is parking amnesty for a bit, so people can retrieve their stranded vehicles without fear of penalties; surprising kindness on the part of bureaucracies with budget woes. Not everywhere, though.
We walked briefly before grabbing a bit to eat and coming home to practice. I felt no desire to stay outside in the miserably cold dark. May this not be a taste of the rest of the winter...

We had a significant snowfall on Saturday and were without power until Tuesday. Quite an ordeal because losing power means losing well pump, water heater, and electric starter on furnace. It's amazing what we can learn from one long power outage. I hope your winter hasn't begun yet...

I saw that post, robin; I'm very glad you guys coped well with that situation. It's one of my worst scenarios!
Yikes, I hope this isn't going to be winter, too. It's only fun for kids.
