Yup, all of New England was hit by an ice storm last weekend. We, like most people within a 60 mile radius, lost our power. Out for 2 days. No heat and unable to cook, Emmett and I abandoned ship for Nana and Pops Draper's house. They have a wood stove.
The upsides were: Catey didn't have to work on Friday, Eugene got to surf the storm swells, Emmett started clapping, we spent lots of time with Nana and Pops, whom we love, and we really appreciate the power company right now. In fact, we have practically everything that uses power running right now in our house.
Here are Emmett (who is 9.5 months) and I with Pops in his warm living room.
