not your average fall.

so it snowed the other day. and i don't mean like a dusting. i mean full on noreaster. the power went out around 10:30 on saturday night, and we woke up cold and buried in 8 inches of snow.
yes, i do mean buried. multiple trees broke, one even fell on our house. no damage though, thankfully.
school was cancelled monday because the majority of town, including the school didn't have power. it got down to about 50 degrees in my house without heat. we thawed next to the fire and stayed outside because, ironically, it was warmer out there. 
we got power back at 8:41 on monday night. i had taken refuge at my friend's house who had heat, but went home to a warm house. finally. school was cancelled tuesday too because they still didn't have power. now that's a great start to my birthday week.
