as Grandma would say, "ya don't miss the water till the well runs dry..."

We were without electricity for about 46 hours. UGH!!

It was 43 degrees in the house when we woke up this morning.

The neighbors were all running generators after the first few hours, and we're walking around through the whole thing like it's pretty much an every day occurrence for us. Cuz, you know, it IS. Hey, who else do you know can survive an entire winter by using only a half of a 250 gallon tank of oil and sometimes less?:)

The weird thing is you just don't know what to do with yourself when there's no electricity. You can't read for very long, and we could have watched a DVD on the laptop, but I didn't think I could sit through another episode of Fantasy Island.

So we ended up in bed around 7:15 last night. At first we were talking, then we fell asleep and it seemed like we slept for hours. When we woke up, my husband said, "What time is it?" and I opened my cell phone and said, "OMG! It's only 9:30!" Oh lordy what a long night.
