A Snowy Night

Ugh - March came roaring in like a lion! I hope that means it will go out like a lamb and that April and May will be lovely weather (especially May 4th!). ha :)

Last night the snow hit us here in southeastern Indiana. We had about 1/2-1" and the power decided to flicker. My Facebook feed was full of people reporting the same thing. After about 20-30 minutes at half power (seriously, our lamps and Scentsy warmers were on, but nothing else had power), the electricity went out. Took 3 hours for it to come back on, I decided to go to bed since my phone could finally charge (it was about dead, plus it's my alarm!). Little did I know after falling asleep in the next 20 minutes, electricity went back out and was off for another 4 hours! Yikes. This morning we woke up to a good 3" of heavy snow covering everything.

Eric worked last night (they just switched the rotation to 8 weeks of nights) and they were without power for several hours as well. It took him over an hour to make the usual 40 minute drive. Yuck!
