Powder, no power

About four inches of snow fell this morning. Which led to a power cut, no doubt due to snow on trees taking out a line.

Since we’re on a well, no power means no water, which can be a pain. We do have UPSes to keep the internet going, so at least the most important thing is covered. 😉

One day we’d like to get a whole-house generator that we can hook up to our big propane gas tank, but those suckers are expensive. It’s usually not off for too long, so we just stick it out, and often prepare by filling containers with water if we think a cut is likely (due to high winds or snow).

Oh hey, the power just came back on, after being off for almost exactly two hours. We’ll see if it stays on.
