Well, the power stayed on for 12 hours and then went out again this morning at 7 a.m. just as I got to the barn to feed the horses. Just came back on a little while ago and I'm hoping it stays on this time!
It was so frustrating not knowing when it would come back on. They were telling us it would be 3-7 days before it would be restored... we were lucky it didn't last the 7 days.
The little town just a couple minutes from here never lost power, so we were able to get out and get ice (before it all sold out!) for the coolers to put some of the food in. But for the most part, we lost all of our food in the refrigerator and freezer minus a few things.
Due to not being prepared, and the stores selling out fast, we basically lived on bread and potato chips for three days
