the calm after the storm …


We made it through!  The power just came back on after 8 days.  We’re safe, warm and dry.  And I caught this photograph yesterday when we finally got out and about a little bit.   (I decided not to post any of my storm photos as you’ve all seen them over the news, I think.)  Hope you and your loved ones got through safe and sound.    We’re battening down the hatches for the next storm, and I’ll be back to blogging soon.

Carrie, if you read this, let me know your final book choice, and where you want me to send your prize.  




  1. So glad your back up and running - I hope everyone is up by now also - I read about the new storm and I can't believe it - thinking and sending prayers your way - are the kids back in school?

  2. Hey Steph ~ I was so happy to see that your power was back on! I will remind Carrie to contact you about the book. ;o)

  3. I've been thinking of you and I'm glad you made it through ok. It's hard being without power. We had an ice storm a few years ago and were without power for close over 7 days. When things got back to normal we immediately went out and bought a generator and kerosene heater!

  4. hi Steph! i'm so glad you are home and safe. i had no idea you where in the path of it. i'm sorry i haven't been by to check in on you is so long! xo suz
