Well yesterday was a total washout! It absolutley poured all day and sooo windy it took our power out from 12 pm to 5 pm.
We do have a generator but it hasn't been used in 2 years so we could not get it started! We were without any computer, water, or heat for 5 hours. Fortunately we have 2 gas fireplaces so we had those both on and it kept us fairly warm.
It sure would have been nice if it had of been warm outside but unfortunatley we had to sit inside, but it was just fine.
As I have mentioned before it is so difficult having to take our small dog out of the country. So much paperwork, etc, and the worst part is that we have to put her in the 'belly' of the plane for 6 to 7 hours and that is an immense worry for me.
Yesterday though we mentioned to my brother that it would be great if someone could drive us to Miami as that would cut the flight time down to 3 hours for Sadie. We have family in Fort Lauderdale, including our Grandma who we want to see before we move and our aunts and uncles who we haven't seen for quite a while and who we really want to see as well.
To our surprise they said they would love to drive us! This works out great as our Uncle also owns a condominium right on the beach in Fort Lauderdale that we can stay at as well, with pool, etc. Yeahhhhh!!!!
So excited for this to happen for all of us and especially Sadie as she will not be a happy camper alone in the dark and dungy 'strange' place with all of the luggage. Poor Baby!! I will me more upset than she will.
I am also looking forward to spending quality time with my brother and sister in law.
Well it looks like the snow has stopped and now the sun is trying to come out.
Still not 'sitting out on the patio' weather but nonetheless it's improving.
Gotta go and get my 'curry chicken' ready to cook for dinner.
Have a great day and I will write more soon.
