I've been off Active Rain for nearly a week.
New Hampshire for those of you that are unaware has suffered a terrible ice storm.
Jay and I are lucky but very cold.
Our power went out SIX days ago... yes 6 days ago and to date is still out.
Today the temperature in our home was 45 degrees and dropping. We have no running water, no Internet, no heat and are very worried about bursting pipes.
We are indeed lucky we have a motor home and while it had been winterized and all items removed and stored for the winter we were able to get if filled with propane and can sleep in it.
It has a generator but little else. No running water or potty...but it has heat! Sleeping in a tin can (motor home ) not meant for 30 degree temperatures is better than sleeping in the freezing house.
Better yes, but I am very drained and trying hard to make the best of it.
I don't know when we'll get power back and people in NH have died trying to keep warm. Four so far...imagine people dying trying to keep warm!
We're lucky, I do know that and I am very grateful for what I have!
If I can't get back on for awhile...
Merry Christmas everyone and stay warm!
