Ducky, our gas fireplace is operated by a switch on the wall and it did work when we had no power during Snowmaggeden.   Does hers operate from a switch and did she try it?   Jim was really surprised when he tried it and it switched right on.   That's how he heated the downstairs when we had no power for 3 days.  I was stuck at the hospital during that storm so I missed the pioneer spirit.

UPDATE from Sherrie!

Power came back on. She's reset the thermostat and turned on the fireplace. She'd never opened the fridge or freezer but checked and she will lose everything in the freezer and most of the frige contents.

Water lines seem to be okay, no leaks yet. Power outage caused the city to lose their water pumps.

Still no internet or phone, just texting.

Kathy, she didn't say much about the fireplace other than it needed electricity to ignite the gas.  :dunno

 

Lulu got her Cytopoint injection today. If you remember several months back she had licked the pads of 2 paws bloody raw. At the time vet said either this will work or it won't since she'd seen different reactions. Could have lasted only a month but she got that first one in early October.

Talking fast.  Utility services coming and going right now.

Tiller and Heart did well.  Thank goodness for grandma's quilt stash.

Looks bad starting tonight with another ice storm for the next 2 days.

Thanks to all my friends for keeping us in their thoughts and prayers. It has been rough but we have made it through so far.

News is the coroner's ordered trailers so they can store the bodies of those that did not make it. So sad.

I am a tough old bird.  I will do whatever it takes to keep Heart and Tiller safe.

Better send this before I loose it.

:coffee I am home and exhausted. It usually takes me two or three days to recover! The film marathon was fun but not the same as being in the theater with 300 other crazy loons! Hope next year will be back to normal. I’ll be picking up CK this evening. They said he’s a good boy, not sure I believe them <_<

Going to have breakfast and go grocery shopping.

Power just came back.  Seems couple hours on then couple hours off.  Ok with that, sharing power.

Tiller and Heart still burritoed in my grandmother's quilts.  Getting really tough to get them up to go potty. Literally shoving them out the door occasionally and shutting the door in their face until they potty.

Pouring rain now, but more snow heading this way.

Hugs to you all

It's WindsDay everwon!  And, while it is windy, it is nothing compared to walkies yesterday!  That was even colder than now!  We still don't know what we are going to get tonight and tomorrow.  We just know it is supposed to be lots of snow and ice.  Yuck.  Guest was outside this morning chipping up our hard work outta the yard before the next layer of snow and ice comes in.  Apparently, she isn't interested in leaving it there until spring.  Party pooper :rofl 

And, guess what?  We now have possum number TOO at our house!  This one is much smaller and cleaner looking :lol:  It was under our grill, which is only 5 feet from the doggie door.  The boys were losing their collective minds, not that it took much :rotfl , around the grill.  :brushteethlifted the edge of the cover and eyeballs stared back!  Guest moved the grill and chased it off the deck.  She didn't think the boys would ever come back in!  They finally did - after their ears were frozen :lol  I know some peeps think possums are cute, but for the life of me, I cannot imagine how.  Those tails!  :sick

Miss Sherrie, we are glad that you are getting power back at least most of the time.  Stay safe!  Paris gets thrown out of the house to potty with almost every weather event that we have.  

AndiPants, we are still hoping you have gotten some heat now, too.  Guest has never been without heat for more than a couple days but has always had a fireplace or wood stove.  She cannot imagine.  

Well, I am being booted off so she can get back to work.  She is just so crazy busy and it is cutting into MY time.  So rude.

Stay safe and warm(er) everwon

Today's status is still unchanged.  No power for us, along with 200 thousand other folks, and no time frame for getting it back.  :(

Everything in the fridge and freezer is spoiled.  And we're pretty much out of hot water left in the hot water heater.  I *really* want a shower!!!

We even tried to go to a hotel yesterday, but no one would answer the phone!  Maybe I'll try again today.

The dogs are fine,  :rolleyes: but Dennis and I are getting tired of dealing with this.  At least we can have hot food delivered, and get out of the house, now that the snow and ice have melted.

Glad everyone else is doing well!

Later Gaters!
