Snow Update #2

The power came back on Wednesday the 27th.
We still have no phone - though Verizon promised they'd be working on it today. There happens to be a 12-foot high snowbank below the pole they need to work on; Don's not sure they're going to be able to reconnect the line without a big truck and cherry picker. And there's no place to park one. Are we going to have to wait until the snow melts in April to get a phone again?

Without a phone line, I have no internet access at home - disaster!

Today I came to work without my cell phone - it's on the kitchen counter. I can't call Don to bring it to me, since we don't have a working phone. I feel bereft. Lost. Floundering.

I'm still having to park next door - my parking place is under 10 feet of snow, dumped there by the plow as it cleared the street. I'm glad Tom isn't interested in coming up to his house any time soon.

The snow on our deck has compressed and melted, and is now only 3 feet high. One of these days we'll get to it and clear it off before the deck collapses.

But it's nice to have power - and to be WARM.

"Only 3 feet high"! I can't imagine using "only" in that phrase. Glad you have power at least. Hope things continue to improve and you stay warm and safe.

Thankful you're safe, have power and can heat the house without wearing blankets! My family was amazed at the amount of snow you received!

Hang in there!

Wow, if there's that much snow on the deck, how's the roof holding up?
Hope you have phone service soon.

I hope your roof won't collapse. But I am sure by June you will have your power back.
