After close to 42 hours with no electricity, heat, cable, phone, internet....having a warming home, lights, cable, phone and internet make me very, very happy! And the electric towel warmer in my bathroom warming up my towels while I took a hot shower were an added enjoyment too!
We were actually pretty lucky as we do have a gas fireplace in the family room, so that was put to good use. We could also warm stuff up on the gas stove in the kitchen if needed. Our cell phones were our lifelines. And my down comforter kept me toasty warm last night.
Hubby had to go to three Dunkin Donuts before he could get me a coffee and bagel on Friday and Saturday mornings! I so need my morning coffee!
I think we should invest in a transistor radio because I really missed hearing what was going on in the area during this ice storm. (I could have also listened to the Y&R on Friday too!)
One of the coolest things about the power outage was last night, the full moon was just soooo bright! I guess without the indoor and outdoor lights, it just reflected so brightly off all the snow and ice. It was really amazing and something I probably would not have noticed if we had power.
Now I just hope that all those still without power do get it soon. Some reports say it could be a week and a half before all are back up. It went down to 4 degrees last night and didn't get out of the teens today. A lot of people decided to go to hotels rather than spend the night in the cold. Some areas have opened up shelters as well in high school gyms, etc.
I am also glad I will be able to watch the season finale of Survivor tomorrow night!
