that was rough

Just went almost an entire week without internet service at my house. I didn't care for that, not one bit. We are back on and stronger than ever- even if the power still goes out periodically while they put back power lines. If you can't tell it has been a heck of a week for weather around here. Ice that accumulated to an inch thick and broke trees. Over a foot of snow (two feet in some places). I actually have a drift in my yard that is taller than my truck at this point. The temperatures are going to be below 0 here this week and they are calling for more snow. I won't even bring up the wind at this point. I am ready for spring.

I have managed, in my net deprived existence, to get a little bit of editing and re-writing done. I am almost to the half-way point of my novella. It is to the point where it is needing more work and, quite frankly, that takes longer.

in other news my end of the year wrap-up will be my next post. It will be full of statistics for those of you that like that sort of thing. Overall I can't complain about the year I had. Much better than I thought it would ever be when I started this whole writing thing. Have a safe New Year and if you happen to get blitzed and run around in the streets with a lampshade on your head please send me pictures. I won't show anyone :) I promise. ;)

Yikes, I'm glad you're safe and hopefully you're warm too. The last time I had to go a week without internet, I practically flipped out. Welcome back. :)

We have never lost power at this house for so long. Lucky it was at night and we slept through most of it. It is good to be back.

Welcome back...

Glad to hear everyone weathered the weather. I look forward to your end of the year post...maybe I should try to get mine together, too.

Well, with the lampshade and all privacy wouldn't even be an issue. Unless, like me, the person had a lot of tattoos ; )

Aaron- they are calling for more snow on Wednesday. We have already broken snowfall records for the month of Dec.

Nat- exactly.
