On Sunday mid afternoon great big giant snow flakes began to fall. Hubby went out with Fritz and when he arrived back home he exclaimed that the snow was falling an inch an hour!
I watched until darkness and then I would go and turn on the outside light to check on the down fall. All I can say is that the snow was falling fast and that it was thick and heavy!
I made dinner and cleaned it up and we settled in to watch a movie on the TV when…BAM we heard this loud noise and the lights went out!
I grabbed the flashlight and called our electric company and stayed on the line because I knew where the breaker had blown!
With a good 10 inches on the ground, the electric company truck arrived and fixed the breaker problem on the pole to the left of our house, and light was restored!
Now one thing I must interject is that Hubby saved the day because about twelve years ago he insisted on buying a generator, despite my objections. I mean, why bother with it as we never lose power. But, he insisted!
We have used that thing more often than even I want to admit! Yay, Hubby!!!
Overnight it continued to snow and Hubby used the snow blower until after 11 o’clock last night. Despite the continuing snow!
We woke to a foot of snow and quite luckily, we were able to get out of our 600 foot uphill driveway!
We drove to Manchester to pick up his new hearing aids. Now this was very exciting as the trees were full of heavy white snow, and the roads were horribly icy! Everyone was driving slowly, and seemed to fly by us. Personally I thought they were insane!
I was proven right as we drove south and one truck after another was spun out and in a ditch! Hubby and I calmly drove along.
The drive home was much less exciting. The trees had shed most of their snow and the roads were dry. Hubby loves his new hearing aids and so do I. The TV is now at a normal level and my ears no longer hurt!
