Merry Christmas!!!

Just wanting to wish everybody a most wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays from Ontario!



It's been an interesting last 3-4 days. Had an ice-storm sweep through Saturday night, lost power on Sunday morning, but Santa came through and we got power back late last night *jumps up and down with joy!!!!*  Didn't want to leave home, but have been rotating through various sympathetic friends for meals and water as my house rapidly cooled when using candles as heat just wasn't cutting it (where I am everybody's on wells, so no water either *sarcastic 'yippee'* ;p)  Especially fun as the temps dropped to -14 C outside. It was like trying to live in a refrigerator.

So, Christmas... let's just say I wasn't having the most wonderful thoughts as the majority of my plans got wrecked, but it made me realize what great friends that i have and that that, and family, is the most important thing *hugs them all close*

Also, on the plus side, the ice on the trees is quite beautiful when glittering in the sunlight... but I'll still be very glad when it melts :)
Next year I'm asking Santa for a generator....

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!! May it be full of joy, and hope, and all the best the season can bring! *hugs you all!!!*

Aww. Merry Christmas. Yay for power!

I grew up in the country, and remember the year that my dad got the generator. You could only run like one thing at a time on it, but running water was a miracle. :)

I hope your pipes didn't freeze!

Ah, the joys of country living! I was semi-prepared but had never had a power outage for that long. Looked to buy a portable heater - totally sold out - and generators... yeah, a bit pricey, but I'm all for the miracle water/heat ;) Relied on my grandad's old camp lantern to keep some heat by the pipes which, thankfully, worked.

Merry Christmas to you too! *hugs*
