We got our power back on Thursday night while shopping for dinner. We came home and voila, light! Everyone was relieved, including the dogs. However, I did notice that we all scattered to our electronics, where before we'd talked at mealtimes (not much else we could do.)

After shoveling heavy wet snow for an hour on Wednesday, I was still sore on Friday, so my gym workout turned into 45 minutes of walking with me doing pushups and hanging leg raises every other lap. It's not my preferred workout, but it was effective and I started feeling better.

I had to pick up a prescription, go to the library and do laundry after work, so I decided that I'd eat dinner out at a little diner near the laundromat (we normally do it at home, however, the bad weather meant that laundry had piled up and dad was worried we'd overdraw the well.) I had sourdough pancakes and reindeer sausage with blueberry pie a la mode. I don't eat like that often, but I really needed those pancakes. And the sausage. I don't eat pork, so it's usually turkey sausage at home. Reindeer sausage is a rare treat.

Saturday I went to run errands, but did not have time to go to the bookstore. Bah. We went to see Neil Simon's play Fool, which was hilarious and fun and silly. I ran into the father of someone I used to babysit- she's now a science teacher. I'm old!

Today I took a morning walk, did laundry since the well is ok, went to my office for a couple of hours and then took a sauna at the gym. I enjoyed the sauna, but not the migraine I currently have. It triggered before the sauna, so I should probably have skipped it. I'm all doped up on meds now and will hopefully get off my computer and go to bed soon.

Kinda sad how we all go straight for our devices, isn't it? I grew up in an area with really bad reception, so I was used to not being able to use my phone all the time, but my friends would visit from town and be waving their phones around trying to get a signal and I would find it really annoying. I'm probably just as bad as they were when I go home now, though.

I have found myself reading more books offline the last few days, so that's good.

It seems like it's always snowing somewhere. :/ I'm glad the weekend went ok despite that!

I actually like snow, just not a heavy wet 15 inches that takes out power lines!

You don't realise how much you use power until you don't have it.
I've had reindeer steak but not sausage, it sound nice.
I hope your migraine has gone

I don't know how many times we walked into a room and hit the light switch. A lot, I think.

Reindeer sausage is spicy and delicious.

Migraine has melted away with the morning sun- and some Excedrin migraine. Love that stuff, but not at night.

Power is good! And the power grid is remarkably vulnerable everywhere. Don't really like to think about it - I'm glad you were set up to last through the long outage. And sorry to hear about your migraine - hope it's passing quickly.

In this case we had 15 inches of snow fall while leaves were still on trees, therefore bringing them down across the power lines. Not really something anyone could plan for, though I'm buying a generator wherever I end up next.
