I'm back ,,,,,, The electricity has been off a week today . It has just come back on five minutes ago . Last week we got two feet of snow and it knocked out all the power for 40,000 people over 200 miles apart . Now I thank god I keep extra propane and food . It has been snowing off and on all week , temp's down into 15 or 16 degrees . A new storm is coming tonight and about every other day for the next week . The snow is about three feet outside my door right now and all the roads are closed . In the best of times my road into my gate is a 4x4 road ,, Now I don't even want to try riding my 4x4 quad out , And I'm known to ride where others won't .My library was lost in my last move and all i had left was one Louis L'Amour and a Clive Cussler . I was ready to reread Mustang man for the third time today . Isn't it fun to be snowed in ?? I was contemplating changing my catheter just for something to do .
I hadn't even been able to go out side , But I did shut off the well and opened all faucets . No electricity no well house heat all my water supplies are now frozen . I did have 8 gallons in jugs but am down to what's in the coffee pot and a half gallon . No choice but tomorrow I'll have to fire up my quad and go for water . After I dig it out of the snow . I think it'll take three or four days to thaw out the pressure tank before I can turn on the pump . Then and only then I can hope the pipe's didn't freeze and my draining them did some good . Did I mention how much how much fun it is being snowed in ???
I did move out here on purpose so I can only blame myself I wanted solitary and quiet . But damn when it snows it really is quiet .
