Hello March!

That's us in the beautiful magenta color-12/15 inches
Boy, did we have a storm. Heavy, wet snow...and it came down 1 to 2 inches per hour. It's pretty...but destructive. We lost power. You don't realize how much you depend upon electricity until it's gone. That goes double for us since I don't even have water or phones without electric.  We dug out and drove the 2.5 miles down to my Moms house (because she DID have electric) and dropped the boy off. At 7 the lack of lights, tv, and the Internet was more than he could bear. Add to that the temp in the house was falling fast and he's been so sick it was worth the trek down the street and up the hill to get him to civilization again.

The first restore time was Monday at 4 pm. This was given to us on Saturday at 9 am. Unacceptable. The power did come back on Saturday so we can't complain too much...and the boy ended up staying the night at Grandma and Grandpas ...and the Mr. and I got a much needed "adult" night in.

I'd have to say it was a pretty good weekend.....

I'll have more to say later I'm sure.

Glad you could enjoy the power outage in a good old fashioned way! I don't know how'd we would cope with a power outage here.
