"Thank You" to so many of you who were worried about me, but my MIA Status was mainly due to a lack of Volts, Amps, Watts, and internet service at the Bear Den.
It started snowing at 7:30 AM, last Saturday.
At 11:30 AM, we already had 6" on the ground, and our electric had just gone out.
By 4 PM we had 12" of snow, and it kept coming until 12:30 AM, when the total on the ground here added up to 18" of a very heavy wet snow.
I was snow-blowing from 1:00 AM until 4:30 AM to get my areas cleaned up.
I could only go half way down my Son's driveway, because there was a 50,000 Volt electric cable down across his main driveway. He plowed the other end, and the secondary part of his driveway too, so he could get out, by-passing that cable.
Most of the leaves are still on the trees around here, and that is the reason everyone suffered so much damage. Trees are down all over the place in the area, and we just got our electric back last night, after nearly 6 days.
It took 4 days for the plows to get to my house, and 5 days for the electric company to show up in this area.
Although it was A PITA, we survived, and had a little fun here & there along the way.
Used my Weber "Q" a few times, and even made a few things on my woodstove (First time!).
I think I used about $40 worth of gas in the generator.
I replied to most PMs & emails I got from you guys, and I will get to the rest real soon.
Thanks to so many of you for your concern!!! And I missed you all too !!!
Below are a few pics for your pleasure---LOL----Especially you Florida guys who miss out on all the white fun!!
