I have finally set up my site and what a day to write my real first blog!
Big news in Newfoundland .......... we had a Blizzard over night and awoke to no electricity. Most of the province lost its electricity.
Temperature outside was -10C during daylight and now it is -12C.
My husband bought a generator last month so we are able to have internet and use a few appliances one at a time. We kept warm on tea, coffee, hot chocolate and a fire in our fireplace (Thanks Herb for the wood....GREAT NEIGHBOUR)
During the day I found that I was getting cold just sitting around so I decided to finish cleaning my studio (will show more later) which was a mess from Christmas preparations. So here I am all dressed up to do some cleaning....... not the usual dress!
I have long john's under my flannel pjs and boy wearing a hat really keeps you warm. My headlight worked really well and after a couple hours cleaning I did warm up.
We managed to get a warm meal in the evening and now it is time to get ready for bed. We decided to bring a mattress downstairs and we are sleeping in the living room tonight!
This is what it must have been like in 'The Olden Days"..............at least I don't have to go outside to pee.
Hope tomorrow brings some heat, and warmer temperatures (I believe it is suppose to go up to a bombing -5c).
Have you ever had a blackout and if you have what did you do to keep warm?
