OUR 1ST BIG WINTER STORM OF 2018 AND A THANKSGIVING MIRACLE

Hi Everyone and Welcome, as most of you might have noticed I went dark unexpectedly for a while. Sorry about that but it couldn’t be helped. I’m going to proceed to tell you why I went dark and that might help you understand. These last few months have been hectic, busy with unexpected situations popping up, winter storm causing the electric to go out for multiple days, getting ready for the holidays, trying to get everyone to come for the holidays and etc… is what’s been happening.

The title says it all about what happened in our little town here in Pennsylvania. Let me start at the beginning. Last Thursday(the Thursday before Thanksgiving) we had some electric glitches where our electric went off then came back on real quick. No big deal right? Wrong. As we soon learned that was just a warning that our electric was going to go out for a while(3 days to be exact). At 11:30 PM Eastern or a ‘Tad’ there after was when we lost it for good.

Since we got rain/ice/snow, trees were so heavy they were cracking and falling down, transformers were going. Lines were down. I have never heard our scanner so busy with lines down, trees down and etc… It was really bad. We learned that the storm not only took out a lot of lines and trees but it took out several transformers and 9 power sub-stations. Then because the storm was so big we were told electric wouldn’t be restored until after Thanksgiving. That of course was after 2 days of being told you’ll have your electric restored. Thankfully we have a gas stove. We might not have been able to use the stove but we were able to use the burners so we could fry food and use the stove top. How cold was it? I hate to admit this but it got so cold I literally slept in my clothes and heavy coat along with 3 extra blankets and I was still cold. Below is a slideshow of the winter storm that knocked out our electric. JavaScript is required to see the slideshow.

So when did we finally get our electric back? 3 days later. Then the next day some people who were brought in to help get all the electric turned on before Thanksgiving but that didn’t happen for everyone. Then Didn’t they turn off our electric.  Well a few hours later we got our electric back and hopefully so did some other people. So we cut it close for Thanksgiving hence our Thanksgiving miracle. More about that below in this post.

Now about our Thanksgiving miracle. I’m grateful for a lot but this Thanksgiving I had something huge to be grateful for to add to my list. You see we got our electric back just in time for Thanksgiving which meant we got our stove back, heat back and not going to my sisters for Thanksgiving. That isn’t a bad thing because she’s a good cook. We got to have everyone from the intermediate family here on Thanksgiving(12 people). So the Good Lord saw fit to take our electric away for a few days and He saw fit to give it back just in time to have Thanksgiving at our house. Miracles do happen and sometimes you’re blessed with multiple miracles at once. That’s what happened to my family and I.
