So it snowed here a couple of months ago. Many people didn’t hear about it but it was actually a huge deal. I’ve been hearing since August that it is going to be a long hard winter according to the Farmers Almanac I suppose mother nature just decided to get an early start.
We survived 3 days with no electricity. We ate well and stayed warm. We decided that we needed a bigger lantern (check) and some more back up water and we will be extremely comfy next go around.
It could have been so much worse for us. Other families went a week or more without electricity, trees were down all over the place, people were trapped in their cars overnight and ranchers lost thousands of cattle. I heard a story later from a woman whose friend went into labor during the storm and the national guard had to come and get her, pretty awesome if you ask me.
Here are the photos I took on Friday and Saturday. We finally got out late Monday afternoon, pretty good storm for only October.
