Power outages and stuff.

Good Morning, it is Sunday.

There is a little more than a trace of snow on the roads and under the trace is ice, so we are staying put this morning. This model of some snow on freezing roads is supposed to be the norm for the next few days.

The power keeps going out in our neighborhood. Probably 7 or 8 times over the last three days. Usually lasts [without power] for about an hour or so each time. When the power goes out in the night, Lillie freaks out. I may have to shop for a battery powered nightlight so this does not happen in her room. Having to calm her down and sleep in her room for a while is no way to get a good night sleep. Luckily the power to the neighborhood behind us stays on and if I open her blinds, the street light shines in her room. We are certainly relying on power these days. Whenever the power goes out, our neighbor's generator kicks in and the loud motor is just a reminder that we have no power, but our neighbor does. Preston's 6th grade friends just got back from a week of school camp. They seemed to have a great time. Some of his friends were kind of worried about going to camp without the use of cell phones, Nintendo, TVs, you name it.

See you tomorrow.
