Here are some pictures that were taken last weekend from the storm and our power outage. Those poles were just some of them that were down on our road. There were also several poles that the lines were just hanging from them. Trent counted 90+ poles that were either going to need to be replaced or fixed.

We finally got our power back on last night about 6:30. I was looking at Megan saying we got power, we got power and she was looking at me like what are you doing? I was just so excited. It blinked off about 6 times last night though. At least maybe I can cook something for supper tonight. Something warm anyway. Not just have cold meat sandwiches.

This is now day 5 and we are still without power. I think I might have a nervous breakdown if the power doesn't come on soon. Today is another storm so the power company probably isn't even working today. They did lay new poles down where the old poles broke though so I guess they are getting a little closer. They said in 2 days we should be up and running unless we do get hit bad with a storm and that is what it looks like today. There are several roads west and north of here that are closed or travel not advised. I have a HUGE pile of laundry that I thought about taking to the laundry mat tonight but if the weather is bad that won't get done. I probably won't be able to get it all done this weekend cuz they will all be full of people unless I can do it in the late evening or early morning.

My friend Annette and I were planning a surprise 40th birthday party for our men that was supposed to happen last weekend but didn't because of the weather so we are shooting for this Saturday unless the weather sucks again.....which it is already on its way.......
