Isn't it amazing how much we rely on electicity! I know the feeling about going around and trying to turn the lights on when there's no power.. Big DUH. Been there done that!
I don't remember where you live but I know most of the east coast got slammed.
Hope you get your power back soon!! And I'm VERY proud of you that this little bump in the road hasn't made you want to smoke!! It'll all be over soon.. (don't envy you having to stay with the "folks".. but its good that you have a warm place to go and that you can stay intouch.)
Extra Warm Hugs,
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren

Glad you're back in your snuggly little nest, Kelly.
I know what you mean about southerners not knowing how to handle snow, I lived in GA for a few years, but was orginally from NJ. When it snowed there people really freaked out!! The day my son was born (in GA), there was a bit of a snow storm (about 1 1/2"), my husband was a southern boy and totally couldn't handle the drive to the hospital. LOL, we wound up getting a police escort!!! I was terrified because no one knew how to drive. ( I wanted to drive, but couldn't b/c I was in labor )
Kelly- My son just got his permit and last week right after it had snowed two inches, I took him up to the High School's parking lot to let him get the feel of driving on snow. (There is no getting around not driving in snow in this neck of the woods). For the first time he did not do too bad, but there wasn't anything to hit!
Happy to hear you have power again and your back home- 20 hrs. was long enough!
