Talk about brrrr! It's colder (with the windchill) than it has ever been in the 10 years I've lived in the Puget Sound area. And we are out of power...still. We were out at some point in the night going into Friday am, got it briefly, lost it again until 1 pm, then lost it again by 3 and it's still not back on. With the windchill it's like -10 in some areas, and our yard is littered with tree limbs and bits and pieces of branches. Lots of clean up to do!
We let our foster Frankie (Sharky's kitty to be) in to sleep with us last night..it was a night of both my tabby curl girls (including Alix) being very curious and just wanting to sniff this Patrick look-alike, but she was having none of it! Snarl and spit, but she did snuggle next to my husband and I all night and did a very happy yawn and stretch this am. Kitties like downfeather comforters too
I think she'll be fine once she gets to know them a bit better - she's fine with Patrick now and is almost ready to snuggle up with him during the day.
At least in our den we have a woodstove, so that room is warm and toasty!
Hope the power is back on by tonight, oil lamps do just so much (heh..anyone else ever given sub-q fluids by oil lamp light? Patrick was SO good about it last night).
ps the reason I can post
is we went in to dh's workplace so he could get some work done that he would have done at home if we had power. The area w/out power is sorta along a line - Bonney Lake, Lake Tapps, Graham and our area, most of the area is fine now re having power.
