Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

The weather outside was frightful...
Branches a blowin'
Power lines' a swingin
Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

Power out Thursday evening...
lost it around 11 pm

BRRR... it was cold....
lines down on both sides of our house
A transformer taken by a huge mean Pine.
Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

Temps dropped into the low 20's
Ice forming on windows
House temp... 42
Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

Finally, found a generator
Ate out alot, Casino's have generators
Won an extra $100
Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

Sleeping fully clothed
Sweats, hoodies, gloves, hat
Socks... I hate things on my feet when I sleep
Let it blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow

Monday 7:00 PM
What's that I hear?
Whats that noise?
Happy Dance... for Electricity...
No more Blow, No more Blow, No more Blow!!!!

One good thing came about w/the power outage..
I got all my X-mas shopping done and all wrapped!!!!
What else was there to do but shop in the warm stores???

Well done you. It's the same here only..different - our aircon totally sucks with the 40 degree celcius days we've been having so I took up lurking around shops where the aircon didn't totally suck. End result is I've probably spent more on the kids than it would cost to have the aircon overhauled....

Have a great Christmas Barney!!
