Yesterday was one hell of a day as my title hints. And the story starts very early in the morning...
at 3 am Sunday morning i was woken by Katie yelling 'RYAN GET UP!" I took a few seconds to gather my whits and realized that the power went out while i was sitting up. She had apparently heard a very loud "crackling" sound and jumped up to turn off the tv so it didn't get fried. We had a pretty severe wind storm and well, you can guess what happened.
The sound wasn't from our house i soon deduced by the fact that the whole area appeared to be without power. So i kind of sat there for a bit hoping the power would come back on...no such luck. So we went back to sleep knowing that it was going to get pretty cold quick. By morning there was still no power, and therefore no heat. The house was down to about 55 by then. Katie left for work and Noah and i huddled up in bed to keep warm.
By about 10 the electric company didn't even have an estimated time of restoration so we packed up and headed to my parents in the next town over. We spent most of the day there. My dad and I hooked up a generator on the essentials. Furnace, fridge, freezer, and fish tank. We lost a few fish before i was able to do this though. Apparently tropical fish don't like water temps in the 40's....go figure!
We ate dinner at my parents and when we got home at 9:30 power was back but it was still pretty cold in the house. So we bundled up and kept warm in bed.
Everything is back to normal now, but what a crappy day...
Oh, i chipped a tooth too. just to add to the mess lol.
SO, I hope your weekend went better than mine did!
Have you ever lost power in the winter?
