Tom shoveled the driveway enough so that we could get the car out, and we are now at Panera enjoying a warm place, warm food, and Internet!
We lost power at noon yesterday. We built a fire in the fire place, lit candles, and set up the camp stove in the garage to heat soup for dinner last night along with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We HAD to eat the ice cream in the freezer for dessert.
We had the house at about 58 yesterday evening, but today the best we can do is 51. With heaps of blankets on the bed we were warm, if somewhat entombed.
Josy the Cat is quite confused.
The ice storm lasted all day yesterday and it remained freezing overnight, but it is now raining lightly and trying to reach 40 degrees. It's a big mess, with trees limbs down everywhere, including in our yard and driveway. We'll have lots of clean up to do.
It's time to hit the road, and go in search of more fuel for the camp stove and the van. We're thinking maybe dinner out and a movie this evening.
There will be pictures later, when we get power back, which may be now or Sunday evening. Who knows.
