Christmas Fun Until the Power Went Out

On Christmas Day, mum went to her sister's place
with her other sister(Team Tabby)
Since she was going to be away for the day
we decided the best thing to do was nap.
As you can see we all agreed to nap together.

As you can see, mum has a large family and extended family.
They had a great time,then they came home

On the way there, they drove on roads that had snow and a little
freezing rain. They were lucky that a snow plow was ahead
of them and they followed it for a while.

Mum's sister lives outside of Wolfville,home to Acadia University.
If you look closely at the top of the building,
you can see the flags are straight out!
It was a very windy day!

It was so windy that when mum got back home around
8 PM, all she saw was darkness anong the streets.
All the houses were in darkness,including ours!
It seems the high winds caused power poles and trees
to fall on power lines.The Power company said spowe would
take a while to restore and some people would not get power back
until noon on Boxing Day(today)
Our place was very cold and  we were too.
We all piled in with mum to stay warm overnight.
Just after 10AM this morning the power came on again!
It was so nice to feel the heat from the furnace.
Today is still cool (-3C ) and a little windy,
but we are snug and warm indoors with heat!
Happy Boxing Day !!

I am sorry it was so cold for you all. I am glad your power is back on.

How cold and yucky, but I sure am glad your power is back on! Happy and warm Boxing Day everyone!

Power outages are so annoying and disruptive. Sorry you had to endure being that cold and dark. At least it’s not as cold there as here, we are 13F and it might be -1F tonight. Brrr!
Enjoy your Boxing Day holiday. Petcretary remembers that with fondness, being a Canadian herself..but now here in the USA where it is business as usual.

We had high winds too, and wonderful lake-effect snow, but fortunately our power stayed on. I would totally freak out if the warming pad in The 'O' Cats Cat Hotel went out due to power outage...it's really cold out there!

Summer said...

Brrr! I bet that was a cold night for you! I'm glad your power got turned on finally!

Marg said...

Bet that was a cold night, for sure.Glad you finally got the power back. Have a good rest of the week.

Ugh, not fun! We're glad your power was restored this morning and that you had a good Christmas in spite of the weather. I don't think my mom lost her power, though she actually spent most of Christmas Day with her step-daughter and step-son-in-law out of the city (not far, Tantallon). Pretty dicey roads! She was glad her son-in-law picked her up, otherwise she wouldn't have attempted the drive. Travelling to Wolfville would have been hugely challenging in the freezing rain, and we're glad your mom's home safe and sound.

Purrs from us!

Poor kids! We're glad you got your power--and heat--back! Yesterday we had the 2nd warmest Catmas on record. It's all very weird!

Glad your mom had a great time with her family.
But I’m so sorry you lost power on such a cold day! Sooo glad power is back now. Stay warm and happy Boxing Day!

Well, snuggling to keep warm doesn’t sound too bad. Glad your power and heat is back now.

Wow! A power outage on Christmas Day is no fun. Snuggling all together is definitely the only way to cope. We hope your power stays on!

Sounds like quite the adventure... glad your power is back... our weather newscasters kept informing us yesterday that we were colder than the arctic....


So glad you were able to get your power restored! Wow that was some winter storm.

Oh dear, it's never fun when the power is out, especially when it's cold and snowy like that.
Glad it's back on, and that you all got some nice time to nap and snuggle together.
