Day 2 of being Iced in, Day 3 coming tomorrow

We woke up this morning to NO power. Thankfully I got to Elijah before he woke up. I was supposed to keep my niece and nephew, so I called my SIL and I took the boys to their house. It was not a fun drive but we made it. We stayed there until about 11:30when a neighbor confirmed the power was back on.

We had rolling blackouts all day due to the heavy demand for electricity last night and today. Many people were caught off guard, including us!

I made it back to my house with the kids and we just stayed in. My fleece shirt is covered in spit up and green beans!. No biggie, but definitely a different kind of day. The district we live in is closed tomorrow, but the district I work in is opening late. However, I won't be going in tomorrow. I'll have my niece and nephew again too! Hoping I can survive one more day home with four kids.

Hoping we don't lose power tomorrow! Hope everyone else is staying warm!
