The Ice Storm

My life is pretty exciting. I seem like a pretty boring person, but when you wrap up my years… and check-off things like learning to ride and buying a Harley, riding on the back of a Harley to Colorado, visiting Las Vegas via road trip through the southwest, and the multitude of shenanigans I’ve been in… It’s pretty great.

But this ice storm, friends, was one for the books.

It actually got me excited instead of scared.

I’m the outdoorsy type. All YEAR= CAMPING!

SPRING/SUMMER = Hate shoes. Hate pants. Love being free in nature.

FALL/WINTER= Bring on the campfires!

So cabin life seems like the life for me. Even in the winter.

This event gave me a great glimpse into real life in a cabin in the woods, or life in the past.

At our house we lost electricity for almost EXACTLY 3 days. Thankfully we have a gas stove and a brand spanking newly insulated home, so we survived the first night in the cold house and were able to cook our meals, but we sought refuge with family for sleep the next two nights as the thermostat crept below 45.

There was wifi. But not enough technology to allow me to get any work done. Besides there were tons of baby evergreens to save from the weight of the ice!

I didn’t have to care about my looks, just about being warm and staying positive. And all in all I enjoyed the experience. I was able to do yoga, make coffee on the stove-top, and enjoy Michael’s company by candlelight.

Enjoy some candid snaps and shots from around the farm.
