Ice Storm is HERE!

Ice Storm is HERE!
I am sooooooo grateful to still have electricity! Unfortunately, I don’t know for how long. It has been raining sleet now. The pictures above were taken earlier today. The kids were glad to be out of school today. We watched Tinkerbell and now we are watching Ariel’s Beginning. My oldest has been cooking little smokies with bacon wrapped around it. So it smells like bacon throughout the house. The hubby still had to go to work today and I am hoping he makes it home safely. It looks 10 times worse now than it has all day. The power lines are all hanging with a heavy bead of ice weighing them close to the ground.

Please continue to pray for us. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer. Your prayer for us may be the reason we still have electricity.

More New Pics of House

These are the latest pics of the house. I am super excited about how the craft room is coming along. See if you can figure out which room that is. Building is starting to “ware” on me though. I feel like all I do is sleep/dream, and think about this house. There are endless amounts of choices and even though it is considered a custom home, there are many things that the builder ends up telling me, “you can’t do that.” It drives me crazy. I really don’t know how anyone would want to do this again. It is A LOT OF WORK! If my children are reading this…know that your mom is only going to be this way until the house is built. I just keep telling myself that this will all be worth it after we move in. I know they tire of hearing, “I’m going to the house, be back soon.”

Again, please pray for us…our old home we live in now will be SO COLD without electricity!

Good Night,
Shan

Preparing for Bad Ice Storm

Well, so it’s supposed to bad here and we are making the last minute preparations to survive the ice storm that is on it’s way here. Everyone here is expecting at least a week without electricity. JOY! As soon as I find them or if I find them, I will post pictures of the last ice storm that was here. It was like nothing I have ever seen before. We moved here 2 years ago today after the last MAJOR ice storm. What a way to celebrate, huh. I guess we will need to invest in a generator. The kids are charging all their gadgets and said all the kids at school thought it was fun last time. I find that hard to believe. But I really don’t think MY kids realize the enormity of going days without electricity. Please pray that it doesn’t last for long and that our electricity will not be out for long.

We will survive,
Shan
