My power has been off since 4:00AM Saturday, it just came on now. We
got 25 inches of snow and the temps got down to -15C. We expect 12 to
18 inches more tonight and tomorrow. Miss me?
Nah, switch your electricity off again !
You've been overruled. But we currently have whiteout conditions so stay
tuned. Sheila should be in the thick of it around now as well.
but local roads have a thick white covering, as do all the power lines -
once the predicted winds begin, I'm sure there'll be widespread power
I cook with gas, and I always keep a well-stocked larder, so we should be
okay - assuming the pipes don't freeze. We have duvets and hot-water
bottles, so _we_ won't freeze.
WOT!! no electric blanket?
Is that in the US Sheila or Melness??
When we lived in Tassie we could get frozen pipes even though we didn't get
such low temps as you all do. After our second burst which would have ruined
guest bedroom if we hadn't been in the building, we went back to a trick we
to use in the UK which was to leave a couple of taps just dripping slowly
night, which was enough to keep the water moving in the two most offending
In todays water saving culture I guess they could drip into the sink.
