    How are you doing?

    We got about 10 inches of heavy wet snow and counting....lost electric at 3:30 am till around 5:30 am and then lost it again about a half hour ago....thank God i have a laptop and verizon wiresless for a connection, though i will probably lose my battery juice soon....and thank God I had the intuitiveness to make the morning coffee before we lost power again!

    It is beautiful out though....the pine trees are coated and weighed down with snow....got some really pretty pics that I have not downloaded yet.

    It is not suppose to stop snowing here until around 4 pm....

    what is it like where you are at?

    care

    Except for Saturday morning, we had clear skies and temperatures in the 50s over the weekend. We should be in the 60s by Wednesday. It's rough, but somehow we'll make it.

    Seattle weather sucks sometimes. All our snow got melted less than a week ... by the rain of course.

    I expect you and I are enjoying the exact same weather since we live about 30 miles apart.

    So far my electric is still on, but since I've run out of heating oil until tomorrow when they can deliver it, it's rather brisk in the editecian compound this AM.

    It's sunny here, and in the high 50s, which is COLD, to me at least.

    the electric came back on, but i had the fireplace going all night so the living, kitchen and dining areas are warm, the bedroom upstairs is freezing though....the bathrooms are damn cold too! :eek:

    so we have lost electric twice, i made another pot of coffee, in case we lose it again. Central Maine Power has been pretty good for us...only about 2 hours before they brought it back up, both times. Heard 80k lost electric in Maine.

    Sorry about you running out of oil.... :( you know, dialing 211 here, might have gotten you some oil/heat sooner but not certain for sure....you should call them ed, they may have some tips for cheaper oil or for some assistance....they got non government places that are helping this year and the limits to qualify initially is not too low...at least that is what it said on the Bangor News.... Do you have a Propane stove?

    the sun looks like it wants to make an appearance now, don't know if the storm has blown over or we are just in some sort of break....time to DIG OUT! :)
