The Iceman Leaveth

Our power came on yesterday, woo hoo, and we moved back home. The kitties were happy to see us and last night we had all three of them in bed.

Luckily, that is not our tree damage, but a property about a half mile from us. We were very fortunate in that regard, to have suffered no obvious damage. It will be interesting to see if our new landscaping survives though. The other shots are funny ones of John and me trying to survive our homeward bound adventure, these shots taken before we moved over to Beth's house.

All in all I feel so blessed. Although it was certainly disruptive to lose power, I am just grateful to have shared the experience with my favorite person in the whole world, that being my hubby John. He and I maintained our sense of humor which actually made it fun believe it or not. And spending time with Beth, Frank and the kids was the cherry on top.


  1. I do miss St. Louis, but I'm glad I wasn't there for any of that ice. You and John look adorable while trying to stay warm...you cracked me up with the pictures !!

    I'm glad you're home now and I'm sure those kitties were thrilled to be in that warm bed with you.

    Okay....now back to arting...for both of us !!!

    sweet pea,
    I'm so glad that your heat is back on. Brrrrrrrrrr.

    The pic w/you & the cats on your lap is a hoot--who is keeping who warm--that's my question.


  3. You guys are SO funny! I love not only that you have layers, but that you're both wearing hats!! Too much... What did they do in the olden days? I'd never have survived... Hugs, Shari

    From one of your blogwatchers in KC: If I lived in your area, I would be so pissed off at Ameren. Three times in the last six months they have left massive nuimbers of their customers without power. I don't get it. Do you suppose you will be a refund for the time you went without power or compensation for your damages? Hell, no. I know you have had some horrible weather, but so have we, and we haven't lost power once. What a rip-off. They need to upgrade.
