    Electricity is back on now. Wasn't bad at all. So far we have an acumulation of about 10 inches of snow and it is still falling. We don't have a fireplace but I do have an oil heater just in case.

    I live in southern West Virginia.

    It is kind of funny to me that this thread got moved from hubber's Hangout forum.  tongue

    This house is well insulated I must say. Inside temperature dropped only 1 degree F in the three hours with no electricity. Outside Temperature is right at 32 degrees F or 0 C.

      Wow. That is well-insulated.
      I'm assuming there is a lot of wind there. Sounds like quite a storm.
      That means it's a great night to snuggle up under some blankets. smile
      We haven't been hit yet in Michigan. But, it is surely on the way.

        There was very little wind if any. This probably helped as far as being able to keep warm.

        On the other hand phones and TV have both been out and I have had no internet until now.

    First off...Stay warm. This happens to us quite often and always when there is important work to get done or when the kids have to do homework. Oh well...Have a great holiday. smile
