Ice Storms Cause

Power Outages

Yesterday (Wednesday) southeastern Pennsylvania got it with an ice storm. While it was kind of pretty to see ice encasing everything...looked like a crystal world...the trees were already heavy laden with snow from Monday. So lots of trees lost branches or were toppled by the weight. When they fell on power lines...the power goes  out.

We had a power outage yesterday, but it wasn't too bad. Just a fuse on the line popped. It kept our section of the neighborhood dark and cold from 8 AM to 9 PM. It was an easy fix, but others are still out of power. 

This is what we did yesterday while trying to stay warm.
Our pets piled in too. Here is another picture using the flash.

Ice storms aren't the only thing that causes a power outage and I have heard from some of you that you have experienced a similar day or more. What did you do to stay warm and pass the time?

Warm wishes to all!

    1. It was a fun adventure, but we're also concerned about those who still don't have power.
