    My cousins in Michigan got their power back yesterday and were so grateful for it. I can’t even imagine losing power in the winter. The cold would be icky. I’d much rather lose power in the dead of summer.

    Glad you’re okay and got your power back!

      That’s just crazy isn’t it, Kitt? So glad they got theirs back on. I heard this morning that there were still about 15,000 still in the dark. And I think they meant homes, not just people.

      I have to say that much as I disliked it, I guess financially it’s better to lose it in the winter. I need to get out and shop, which I’ve been avoiding (I don’t like stores until about two weeks AFTER Christmas), to replace some of the things lost in the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen. Fortunately everything in the chest freezer was still fine, but I know a lot of people lost even more than I did. When it’s summer, and wish I didn’t know this from experience, you tend to lose a lot more cold and frozen foods. LOL…my preference would be to have NO power outages ever again. ๐Ÿ˜€

      One more plus for me when it comes to losing power in the winter is that I have lots of sweaters and fleece blankets. I can stay sort of warm in cold weather, but in the summer, it’s not possible to be comfortable. And when the power goes out then, it’s usually because of mid-summer storm…meaning it’s super hot and super humid. So if this one had been in the summer, I’d probably ahve learned more than eight things about myself. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    glad you’re safe and well, Kristy. I can’t imagine being without power for so long. we’ve had an ugly winter here – lots of snow and record cold temperatures since mid november. it warmed up over Christmas but last night a flash freezing warning. our temperature dropped 28 C degrees over 6 hours! crazy. but it’s warming up again, tomorrow. hopefully, we’re over the worst of it. stay warm Kristy. Happy New Year

      Hi, Louise…
      You know me, and I do love snow, but it’s been pretty ugly around here this month, too. I honestly don’t remember December being this cold before. It feels more like January and February weather to me. Not weather you want to lose power in, lol.

      That’s quite a temperature drop you had! Not sure what 28 C translates into, but I know it’s a lot. I know once last winter we had an unseasonably warm day and in the space of a few days, dropped over 50 degrees between. I almost would prefer to not have those warm days because it makes the really cold ones feel colder.

      Happy New Year to you, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
