Thawed Out !

Last week was unbelievable. What an Arctic blast it was. I feel so badly for those that are still without power and water. We were blessed that our power was only out for 13 hours and our water for a day. After everything came back on we had some power surges for a day or so and funky looking water that we’ve had to boil before drinking. My aunt is still in the hospital. She had a setback over the weekend, but on a brighter note our fellow Mylotter Alfredo @amadeo is doing quite well. Mike says that Alfredo is improving and that he has been able to get out and go on some drives. Yesterday they went and got Chinese takeout. I hope that you are all doing well.

It's snowing like crazy here and I am sick of it. We did not get that much last year.

You were one of the lucky ones. Glad you have power and water back. Perhaps now, your state can start taking preventative measures to prevent such things in the future. Mother nature has proven how cruel she can be.

@Tampa_girl7 I'm glad to hear that you were. I wish the same for the rest of the state. Hoping they can get power and water restored sooner rather than later.

It is wonderful news about Alfredo. My aunt never was released from the hospital. It’s been nearly a month since she went in.

@Tampa_girl7 I hate when the power and water go out in winter. 13 hours to me is a long time. I hate when the water goes out and then it is not normal coming back on at first. I am so sorry that your Aunt had a setback but so glad to hear about Alfredo.

Watching the mayhem on the news. Not very good and it looks like it may take a while to sort out. Our cold spell seems to be over and it was so mild that the last few days I haven't needed to worry about heating during the day
