Ice Storm!

Last night, we had the fun of an ice storm! I haven’t had to deal with one of these since high school. Thankfully, I was in college in Minnesota when the big ice storm hit 10 years ago and put everyone out of power for weeks.
Normally, I’d just stay home and wait it out, but since we have a baby- we decided to play it safe and go spend the night at Grandpa’s house since he has a wood stove and generator.
We made a quick stop by the grocery store for snacks. Thank god we didn’t need any milk or bread. Yeesh.
 
Got milk? We don’t.
I saw this on Facebook last night and almost died…
 
The ice storm wasn’t as bad as we expected. Our neighborhood didn’t lose power, and the roads were fine, so we packed everything up and came back home around noon today. It was a nice little mini vacation at Grandpa’s. Plus, baby girl played so hard that she slept for 6 hours straight. Maybe we should go to Grandpa’s more often. Snoopy was so worn out from playing with the other puppies that he went straight to bed when he got home, and I haven’t seen him since.
We saw a couple of tree limbs down around our town, but it wasn’t anything bad.
I have to say, ice on trees is pretty.
Hubbs and I spent the rest of the day working from home and snuggling baby girl. So glad the storm wasn’t bad, and we got a nice three day weekend out of it! 🙂
