Long Night

Monday, February 03, 2014

Long day of freezing rain as temperatures steadily dropped. About 8 oclock last night we lost power and it was off for 15 hrs. It could have been worse, but there's not much to do in the dark and cold. At 11:30 this morning it came back on and stayed on. I sure do hope that it stays that way. We didn't even get any snow!! They can keep the ice. It is winter time and I want snow!! Thankfully, everything is back to normal, in the house at least, and we are warm again.

    I live in Tennessee, too, and we must be close to each other because we had the freezing rain beginning on Sunday afternoon, that continued on into the night, and we lost our power just about the same time as you. The half time performance had ended at the Super Bowl, and it was at the beginning of the third quarter. I left for work this morning at 9:45 AM, and I had to do everything in darkness. I arrived back at the house at 2:00 PM, and the power was back on, but I do not know exactly what time the power was restored. I was sure glad that it was on when I got home. I have cats in the house, and they were not at all happy that they had to sleep in total darkness last night, and although it never really got too cold in the house, it did get down to much cooler than what they are used to it being.

    Have a GREAT TUESDAY, and stay warm!

    To top it all off we are in a Winter Weather Advisory for tomorrow from 6 am til 6pm with 90% chance of freezing rain again. I would much rather have the snow any day.

    It happened here too about 2 weeks ago but was only out of power for 3 hrs. That's rough when you are all electric with no back up heat. Hope it doesn't happen to you again! We didn't get the snow either. lol

    I all of a sudden got a chill just thinking about how cold it must have been for you and your family. I am so glad things are back to normal.
