It was nuts yesterday. We suddenly had the craziest power outage. Well I guess it wasn’t really all that sudden as the weather had been indicative of something like this happening. And, I shouldn’t be all that surprised as I am used to our crazy weathers. Still, I don’t remember having such a long-lived power outage. Thankfully our house is very well-insulated so the crazy storm that was raging outside didn’t impact us in terms of being cold, or windows shaking. But it did affect the power. Daniel told me today that we weren’t alone; apparently around 30,000 homes throughout Oregon also lost power. He’d read about it on a statement from Portland General Electric.
What happened was, first there was snow (in the early evening Jayden really wanted to go play in it but I figured it would just be a slippery mess rather than something fun for him to actually play with so I said no). That very quickly turned into rain as the snow melted and there was just a mess of slush (as I’d predicted). Anyway, things are pretty much back to normal now but it reminded me that we have to go and get those emergency light thingies so that our house can at least have some light if – or I should say when – this happens again.
At least now it’s back I can get back onto Facebook. Because, as Daniel says, that is my main priority! Have a great Thursday!
