we've moved out.
at least temporarily.
this is our driveway today around 11am. the snowstorm along with a thick layer of ice has downed trees all over the puget sound. one of my favorite lilac trees is down along with three of our fruit trees. and, that isn't even bad compared to what we've seen driving around.
our power went out sometime during the night on thursday and we have no firewood so by the late afternoon yesterday we could see our breath while we snuggled under blankets on the couch. we even took a nap just to stay warm.
our very kind neighbors offered to let us stay at their house for the night since they have a generator. she even made me some coffee! thanks caroline!
as it happens, my in laws are in arizona for the next couple of months and their nice warm house was just sitting empty so we were invited to move in until power comes back on. we're hoping it's soon, but according to the news, it could be up to five days until all power is restored!
now, that i've got a warm house to stay in, i don't really care!
oh, and i've got big news...my youngest son took 1st place at the division tournament (for wrestling) last saturday! out of 10 teams he is the number one guy at 54 lbs!!
the league tournament was scheduled for tomorrow, but with all the power outages, it's been bumped until sunday. since our little guy is on a fruit/vegetable diet the day before (to make weight) it's not good news, as he has to do it again tomorrow. i'll let y'all know how he does! we're really excited!!
