I have a lot of pictures now to post: My weekend with CK, no school yesterday nor today, and now rolling blackouts. This is something I have heard about but never experienced. It gets very cold to spend 30 minutes without power. I am very grateful that I have wood stored up, plenty of blankets, and plenty of games just in case we end up with a longer than expected blackout. My DSL is having issues, too, so I am only occasionally able to connect with the Internet. I don't know if it is related to the blackouts or not.
For those that live far away and wonder....we are safe, happy, and healthy. I cannot see how we will be able to have school tomorrow nor can I see how they can cancel for the third straight day. It is interesting.
Welcome to February in Texas. All the big storms are in February...every year!
I am so grateful that I am at least partially prepared. I am so grateful that I don't worry too much about heat and food and water because I have some stored up within my home. I know I have a long way to go, but I am so grateful for what I have!
Just as I was almost done writing this....another blackout! We are back on. This one was only 15 minutes, but it sure gets cold fast. Guess I will run and take a shower while I have power and hot water. :)
