Happy new week everyone. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and didn't get as much snow as we did.
Yesterday we had our first big snow. We were in the 12-18 inches range (around 31-46 cm), and there is probably a good 10+ inches of snow sitting on top of several inches of ice/snow mix. We lost power last night just before 10 PM/22 hours, and it is still off. Since it was 10 when everything but my mantel battery-powered candles went dead, we just went to bed. Luckily though the hubby got up this morning and started the woodstove and got the generator running. We only really have lights and water (which we lose as we are on a well), but at least now the internet works, the house is warm, I can take a shower...so no complaints. And I got to sleep in while he got everything running. That's even better.
The funniest part of it all was at 4 AM one of our battery operated smoke detector started occasionally chirping, telling us it was time for a new battery (oops-I forgot to change them when we changed the clocks), and of course it was the one at the top of the cellar stairs. I can't reach it without a step stool and I sure as well was not going to do that with no light. I could just see me falling down the stairs into the dark basement abyss. So I put on headphones and listened to some holiday music until I fell back asleep. And the hubby took care of that too before I got up.
For those of you who haven't had a big snow yet or just like snow, here's a few photos.
Here's the two who love the snow the most!
I also wanted to share this page I made back in October in my Magic, Mayhem and Mystery altered book journal.
I thought it would work great for Tracey's The Meaning Of challenge at Art Journal Journey.
