I hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a good day on Thursday. We lost power at 9:30pmon Wednesday at my sister's due to this:
Luckily I got up early on Wednesday and was there before it started snowing. It was pretty but treacherous. Thank goodness they have a generator because they did not have power back until late Saturday afternoon.
This was the view out of one of my sister's windows. The snow was wet and heavy causing a lot of broken branches and downed power lines. Operating off a generator was interesting. We fried our turkey as usual and luckily everything worked out well.
This is a photo from one of the times the generator ran out of gas and before my BIL refilled the tank.
I headed home on Friday so that I could attend the tree lighting in town on Saturday. This was my first time being around for it and it was cold, cold cold!
I walked down and left right after the lights went on. Many stayed to chat with Santa and ice skate at the pavilion in town.
It was a nice start for the holiday season. My decorations are out and I'm paging through magazines for the perfect cookie recipe!
