My mom, dad, sister are all without power. My boss is without power. And too many friends to name are all still without power and may not have it until next week. People are cold, grouchy, and frustrated right now.
Thankfully we never lost power. But, I missed my hematology appointment. Then the doctors' offices are closed and without power or even phone lines so I ran out of my medication for the blood clot. I am lucky to have a good relationship with my pharmacist though. So again, I'm lucky. I can't imagine how many people aren't able to get their medications or even get into see their doctors right now.
Wednesday night, our friends and their son ended up staying with us. It was their son's 14th birthday poor kid and he's stuck being shuffled around with. But he was a happy camper once we got him set up with his Xbox so he could finally play the games he'd gotten for Christmas.
Then Thursday night, my sister came up to stay until tomorrow (she'll be heading out of town after that). But at least we were able to provide a few people with some heat and food this week.
Luckily I could still work from home. I was scheduled to be off on Wednesday, but supposed to work Thursday and Friday. Of course, it was pretty dead. I wasn't sure who was even around to answer any emails and such.
Anyway, I feel so out of sorts this week that it just doesn't seem much like Fun Facts Friday. So instead I'll just leave you with some pictures of the snow.
