Blizzard Nemo 2013

Who ever named this storm after some lame little Disney fish is a fool.
It was far from a little Disney storm.
It smacked us in the face and left a lot of us laying on the floor for days.
I worked for a good portion of the storm and then returned to my house to find it buried, powerless and the temperature at about 48 degrees. This continued from Friday at 10pm until Monday at 8pm. We lost our fish and some plants but the cat and hamsters survived luckily.

I slept in the house with candles and a fire on Saturday night hoping I would wake up to power and all my lights on but instead I woke up at about 2am in a dark and cold house. I had worked for 18hrs thru the storm so I hunkered down in all my layers and went back to sleep.

I am incredibly grateful to my family who  took care of the kids because they had power and heat.
I will say I was super happy to have them home last night. They are weary like I am just we are off for a bunch of days next week to snuggle and do nothing but hang out together.
I always work and send the kids to someplace safe. This time it lasted longer and I learned a few things. I need to get my shit together a little better. I have camping gear.....somewhere. I also need to replace my rechargable lantern. It broke and would have been better than walking around with a fu-fu candle.
Oh and my dream of a sexy car may be gone. I am constantly complaining about my hunk of junk but I will say this-It has 4 wheel drive and I would not have been able to get to my house without it.
I am glad to have survived and am hoping everyone gets their power back today!
