A beautiful new day dawns outside. Inside, there is no power or water and the kids are getting on each other's nerves. Good time to escape to the barn and start the chores of feeding animals and breaking ice on what water may be left. Everything safe and sound.
Power was restored mid-morning. Priorities: put a pot of coffee on first and foremost, then get a fire going in the wood furnace. The sweet sound of the furnace fan kicking in!
And hubby plowing the driveway with newly functional tractor.
And kids getting along again. All is right with our world in the country once again.
