The four days after the first
Down the drive it looked rather harmless but the ice was gonna stick around for three days because we are 925 ft. above sea level. We still had ice when Puppy took Mimi to get her hair done, but in the valley it appeared like it had never happen.
Monday morning, I had gotten up when the power had first gone off and called in our outage to our local power company. Prince got up early and got the generator going for the kitchen. This was great because my SIL and I have this "I gotta have a cup of coffee first thing." in the mornings.
My MIL kept saying to my SIL "I bet you wish you had stayed in MS. because she had just arrived late Sunday evening.
Puppy vacated the log cabin and came and spent the night on the couch by the fire. I spent my days down there and read as long as I had daylight.
The first day was not so bad, as Prince had resurrected our bunny ears for the kitchen TV with the generator that area was pretty normal except you could not cook unless you used the microwave oven. Prince and Puppy would go forage for food for our meals at local restaurants. Tuesday night we feasted on homemade soup provided by our dear neighbors. By that time the house of glass was VERY VERY COLD. Wednesday the ice dropped from its lofty perch in round little pieces . By the end of the day, Puppy said our yard look liked someone had dumped a large cooler on it.
The Kitty Justice if the power had not come back on, I would have slept by the fire Tuesday night.
