My hometown had its first snowfall of the season yesterday – at least a foot of the white stuff. Then we woke up to a lovely surprise this morning: a city-wide power outage and a busted water main. You realize just how dependent you are on electricity and water when you’re forced to go without / limit your usage of either for a period of time. Most of us here were extremely fortunate to get our power back within a matter of hours, but there are others who will be without it for a few more days.
Shouldn’t it be January before stuff like this is allowed to happen?! 😉
