JuLee's Adventures in Snowonderland

For those people who live in Western Washington, the last few days have been an adventure to say the least.  We have had snow, then ice, then  massive power outages with below freezing temps.  Did I say adventure?  More like  Icy Escapades.... in the dark ... with a broken generator.  Thank goodness I have a Partylite rep as a co-worker and a drawer full of candles as a result.

The one good thing that came out of spending the night huddled under layers of blankets, we did get to meet our new neighbors.

Before you think, hey -  that JuLee is kinkier than we thought ....

We had a Mustang (the car, not the horse) get stuck in front of our house.  Right across the driveway... Great, no way to get out even in an emergency.  The driver left for a while then came back with a shovel.  He was unable to get very far.  DH went out to help and soon there were a bunch of people shoveling and pushing and trying to help a complete stranger.  Adversity does bring out the best in people at times ... and even though we were all cold and hungry and tired, I hope we have made new friends.

Luckily the power came back on this morning and I do not have to go into work.  Perfect day to finish up my Artybecca inspired beads.  I am actually going to SAND them!

  1. We're having just the opposite, stinking heat wave but also power outages due to an incredible storm with over 20,000 lightening strikes. We were fortunate enough not to lose our power though. Gawd..... the thought of no aircon is just too much to contemplate.
    So while your dreaming of cosy warm, I'm dreaming of icy cold!!!!!
