It looks like the freezing rain storm is over. We have been fortunate and have not lost our power or at least to this point we have not lost it. Over 380,000 homes in the Province are without power with many not getting power back for a few days. One lady on the news said they will barbeque their Christmas turkey if the power is not back. Communities have opened warming centers for people to go to warm up if they lost their power. Even though the storm is over all it would take is for a tree branch to fall and hit a transformer and our power would be off. We are in a new subdivision so we don't have many mature trees around so we didn't have the trouble that other neighbourhoods had. Everything is solid ice. The driveway cleaning people came today and just did the basics. They opened up the approach that had big windrows from the plows coming up and down our street. They shoveled the steps and put paw friendly deicer on them and they chopped out the ice so Mommy could open the garage door. They are coming back tomorrow to do the rest of the driveway. Mommy shoveled out the back deck and steps. All the snow is solid ice so I can walk on top of it which I think is lots of fun. Tomorrow Mommy has to try to get into our car which is coated in ice. She thinks she might have to use the blowy hairdryer to thaw the doors so she can get in. We will see........ Anyways this is lots of excitement for me. Mommy said that is not how she would describe it, I don't know what she means.
