baby it’s cold inside

Quick update. We have internet for a short time using a power inverter hubby borrowed from work. It’s not strong enough to power anything but the wireless hub so still no heat. Priorities man, priorities. We’re toughing it out at home tonight and keeping a fire going in the fireplace. It’s 45 degrees in here so no frozen pipes. Woohoo.

We were considering staying at the hotel another night until we called down to the front desk in the morning, AS THEY TOLD US TO when we checked in, to say we were staying and they told us they room was already booked by someone else. WHA??? Oh well. We slept terribly anyway and just wanted to be home.

I spent the day searching for a generator and the boy went with DH to his office where the power is finally back on. I got us a on list at a VIP Auto Center for a generator tomorrow morning. They’re expecting a shipment of 50 of them, and I’m like 14th on the list. You better believe I’ll be on their doorstep when they open tomorrow! (After we have a hot breakfast somewhere of course.) Who would have thought you could buy generators at VIP? Good thing I got a hot tip from a Home Depot employee!

Be warm, be well, and I hope to get online again tomorrow!

    Good luck getting the generator.

    I cannot believe that they had already booked your room out – what hotel so that when family comes out, I’ll tell them not to go there. lol.

    Hopefully we’ll have power back today.

    Hope you’re staying warm. Luckily we got power back late yesterday.
