Do we have power yet?!

Checking in here from the Marriott in Littleton. We've had no power at the house since Tuesday afternoon's big snowstorm, so yesterday I decided it was time to bail and get myself and the kids to a hotel. My neighbor helped me get the generator going so that we could start up the snowblower, and there were 2 feet of snow to be moved before we could get the car out. Iain came home a day early from Las Vegas and met us at the hotel last night.

There was no school on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it looks like the school year will be extended into the first week of summer vacation because of all the snow days... Iain and Nattie have headed up there this morning to see if it's back on yet. I had to dump everything from the fridge so there will be some major grocery shopping to be done when we get back in.

Phew! What a couple of days!

So, for something a bit lighter, here's a little questionnaire I found over at Random Pondering:

Enjoy the hotel. We had a similar situation a few years back with hurricanes. Finally going to a hotel was the best decision we made!
