Anyway, I figured I would post some of the highlights and low points of being locked in for 3 days because it's already fun to look back at the past few days. First I will say we were blessed to never lose the electricity so the experience would have been completely different had that happened. But, with that said...
-Waking up to a winter wonderland was pretty fun. First time we had seen our area in snow/ice so that was nice.
|Friday around our apartment complex|
-Cooking and eating galore! I had gone to the grocery several days beforehand in preparation for just this and it paid off.
|Dude. Frozen pizza has come a long way. DiGiorno Pizzeria |
Three Italian Meat or something like that- highly recommend!
|Whole wheat buttermilk pancakes & scrambled eggs for Sunday brunch|
-Playing with ice. Yesterday it went above freezing for a few hours so before we headed out briefly for dinner, we decided to try to 'melt' some of the ice in the driveway ourselves. It worked a bit and it was fun!
|Used those metal poles to knock chips in the ice|
|Oh wait, we can play ice hockey with the chips|
|Target DIY crafts are awesome :)|
|Our 2013 memories ornament|
-Watching trucks fail to drive on the ice. It was a little entertaining, I must say.
-I went a little stir crazy. I didn't want to drive in the ice but just knowing I couldn't go anywhere even if I wanted to wasn't the best feeling.
-Getting out of bed in the morning wasn't fun.
-The internet was overloaded so that meant Netflix streaming was pretty poor and we couldn't stream the SEC championship very well. I know, first world problems and all, but still a negative.
-The incessant beeping. Ever since Thursday, we have heard a constant beeping nice from an unknown source. All day, all night. We have turned on the fan at night to cover up the noise and the irony of that isn't lost on us.
But really, it hasn't been that bad. Having a forced stay-cation for the past 3 days has been pretty nice, especially since we didn't lose power. My heart goes out to those that have and I have experienced several power outages following ice storms to know how bad that is. But we're ready for life to get back to normal so here's hoping the rest of the ice melts & evaporates off this afternoon!
So what was my weekend. How was your's?
