I was awakened around 4am by the computer power surge beeping. It scared Sparky who was sleeping on the sofa in the livingroom. He came a running, jumped up on the bed and snuggled almost on my head. The power kept going on and off all morning. I looked outside and the deck was buried in 18 inches of snow. I went out to shovel the east side front entrance so I wouldn't have to lift the snow up over the rail on the deck. I saw the man across the street standing on top of his van shoveling the snow off. I don't know where he was going but he didn't get very far. I had to get a path shoveled so Sparky could get out. The snow was over his head.

When I did get him out, it had turned to rain and the ruts in the snow were filled with water. The power has been going on and off all morning and now in the afternoon. The cable is also out. After breakfast, I went out again and shoveled off the car and got the snow cleared so I could get out if I had to. No telling how long the power would be out. Bethel Road is clear but who knows when a plow will come in here. Snow removal from the road is supposed to be covered by our lot rent. lol.

I took Sparky out again and we had our lunch. I was going to relax and watch Gunsmoke but no cable. Sparky is sleeping after his exhausting venture outside. He rolled around in the snow getting soaking wet and causing his coat to come undone. What a mess. We now have two sets of wet clothes. I hope some dry before we have to go out again.
