The email reads as follows:

At 8:00 p.m. it is 12 degrees (the wind chill is six below zero!) and dropping. Our poor heater is working like crazy, but we are warm and cozy inside, thank goodness.

A message from Minnesota? A missive from Maine? No, just an email note from Sandra in North Texas to Sandy Ruth in Washington state. She poked her head out her front door long enough to take this picture, then wrote more:

Every 2 hours our electricity goes off for 15 minutes (they called it a rolling blackout), which makes for a confused computer and electrical system in our house. EVERYTHING is iced in, and it is only supposed to be in the teens today and even lower tonight. What a mess!

Here's hoping everyone else who's dealing with this nasty winter storm is as safe and snug inside as Sandra.

  1. Hi,

    I found you from the Five Question Friday blog hop. I was returning your visit to my blog and noticed this post. LOL, just had to tell you that our house was very, very cold during the cold snap mentioned in this post. Luckily we didn't lose power and didn't have to endure the rolling blackouts but it was still quite a time.

    Thanks again for coming to visit!


We would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment.
