What a Difference a Day Makes! -- CT Nor'easter

What a Difference a Day Makes! -- CT Nor'easter

I really don't know what possessed me to take this one picture on Friday. I knew we were getting snow, and I guess I thought if we had enough I would take a picture of the 'after'.

 

While we out at a wedding yesterday afternoon during the Nor'Easter storm, we received a call that one of our trees had fallen across our road.  Additionally, branches weighed down by the heavy, wet snow had dropped on the electrical wires a few houses down causing sparks and a short and then just blew out our street. 

Ugh...no power and freezing cold. Not a good combination.

This morning I took this shot in basically the same place I took that lone picture. My neighbor cut off the end that was across the road so our neighbors could get in and out.  What a guy!

  

 

Our power just returned after being off over 24 hours so my furnace is cranking now!  Last night was the first night I slept in my clothes in this house ever.  We were getting ready to bail this afternoon and go to a relative's for the night when the power came on. 

This is me just now moving the tree off the road. ha ha

We are VERY lucky.  There are over 800,000 homes and businesses out in CT, and this is not a time to be without heat!  Temps tonight are expected to be in the 20s.  I HOPE everyone gets their power restored sooner rather than later. 

What month is this anyway??
