Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't been around. The snowstorm we got on Tuesday night knocked out our power and we still don't have it back on. I couldn't take one more minute of sitting in a cold, dark house, so I fled to a hotel tonight.
We have a small generator and it is keeping our fridge and freezer running. We have some propane heaters but are almost out of propane and everyone is sold out. Hubby stayed at home tonight to,guard the generator and keep it going. It has been so miserable. He is used to "roughing it" since he is an outdoorsy type guy. Me, not so much.
Power company says they hope to have power back on by Sunday night, I think I can handle one more night and plan to go home tomorrow after relaxing and taking hot showers this evening at the Hampton Inn.
The storm wasn't even that bad. Only 7 inches of snow but it was very windy and it was a wet snow.
The barn owner had to kick one of her own horses out of his stall because Isabella was shivering and shaking so bad she refused to eat during the storm. She stalled Isabella overnight and she recovered nicely. Not many barn owners would do that. I am very lucky to have her someplace that takes such good care of her.
So, this was Isabella's first big snow. (She was in Argentina and Florida before) and we have discovered she doesn't like it.
Please send positive power thoughts my way. I will be back on when the power comes back on!
Take care everyone and welcome to the newbies!
