As you can imagine, we were beyond excited last night when our power came back on! Many of you will have heard about the crazy ice storm that hit us last weekend. Some of you I’m sure experienced it too. There were trees down everywhere and ice covered literally everything! Our power went out Sunday afternoon and came back on Thursday evening. Needless to say it will be a Christmas we won’t soon forget! The power outage also meant our well pump didn’t work which meant no showers, no flushing and no coffee! We were grateful Tuesday when someone lent us a generator which powered our furnace and fridge. And in the meantime we melted snow to flush our toilets and ran to town to buy some drinking water. Although it was inconvenient, the storm brought incredible beauty with it and the candlelit evenings have been fun. The trees were coated in ice and especially on the sunny days this week they’ve been stunning! It made for a memorable Christmas and caused us to appreciate more the warm house, the lights, the flushing, the conveniences we enjoy, the showers and yes, our morning coffee.
