Ok first it was the snowstorm and getting snowed in for days. Now it's the windstorm! It's annoying to be blown away as you're trying to walk down to the car! lol
What's worse is that we keep losing power. I am fine with it until I think things like "oh whoops, guess I can't eat oatmeal then" "dang it, no protein smoothie" I mean, I can't eat anything that needs cooking when there's no power!! I ate the last of my cereal this morning, so hopefully I can actually eat my oatmeal tomorrow!
I don't know if I ever think about how much I need electricity until I lose it! I thought I'd be fine until I start thinking about everything I CAN'T do! No heater, so I'm shivering underneath a blanket. I can't even lay on my bed and read because there is no way to get enough light over there! I couldn't even get online until now to check my e-mail and track my stuff on Sparkpeople. We only have cordless phones, so I would only have a phone until my cell phone dies. No power = not being able to charge it!
I'm done with the wind now!! In fact, I never really wanted it in the first place. Oh and what's even MORE fun is the city is flushing our pipes. So we can't use any appliances that use water, can't drink the water, can't do anything that involves water until they are done! UGH!
Are there any crazy weather things happening in your neck of the woods? Do you need electricity? Or are you sitting there laughing at me? =)
(Edit : I forgot to mention that the wind has been blowing the roof tiles all over the place! Our apartment doesn't seem to be too bad, but further down the row there are big holes where the roof used to be! We're on the top floor, so hopefully the wind will end soon and we won't have to worry!)
