Darkness and Ice in April

I was up a little earlier listening to the wind whistling and whipping around, ice hitting the windows and deck, and then all was silent.

Soon our room was filled with little voices who were woken up by pure darkness… *insert sarcastic mommy face here* So we all slept until about 630 when the kids were up again and I began checking out the situation. Shocked was my response when I realized how bad it was and we may not have power until 11pm.

Let’s be real here, I’m not a “True” camper in anyway. I will camp in a trailer with water and hydro…

As the day went on, hearing we could be without until Sunday hubby got us water to use to flush toilets and also drinking water. Ah welcome to country living lol nope we couldn’t use any water as our pump requires hydro…

We enjoyed a wonderfully bbq’d meal at Mom and Dad’s to celebrate their 33rd Anniversary The cheers were loud when the lights suddenly began to Flickr…and then came on!!! This was the 3rd weekend for us with power issues, good Friday with the pump, last weekend a smaller power outtage and then yesterday. I’m praying that this is it for a while. I am also extremely thankful to all of the Hydro workers!
