The northeast got tricks rather than treats! The unseasonal nor’easter brought some unpleasantness. Since the leaves were still on the trees when the snow hit there was a lot of tree damage and power loss.
So public service message: if you lose power, don’t grill in the house or run a generator in the house or an attached garage. Seems obvious, but there have been some carbon monoxide issues around here with people doing just that. And obvious becomes less obvious when you’re cold!
We’re back up after a bit over a week without power. Made me glad I had extra quilts around! Apparently despite global warming the need for quilters is not yet extinct. (Not sure if this will inspire me to finish any more of my UFOs anytime soon…) Unfortunately no one can figure out how to take care of some of our tree damage so they threaded the wires through the broken branches. Uhm, yeah. So prepping and waiting to lose power again.
I was going nuts from the lack of crafting almost as much as the always being cold part, so celebrated by making a tried and toasty treasury. (And will with a hot bath as soon as there’s enough water to do so. Until then, lots of laundry to catch up on.) Oh, and a delayed due to inclement weather collection for November’s lovely warm birthstones.
