    Mel, 820 000 people lost power in Connecticut, where Colleen lives. There are also many trees down. Connecticut is one of many states that has been declared an emergency.Hopefully she has a warm place to stay with her animals. It could take days to get power in that state.

    Her area was hit hard by the snow storm and most are without power. It probably will be days or possibly a couple weeks before it is restored. I'm sure she is without internet service also.

    Colleen is a smart cookie, she is a prepper. She must be warm and cosy.

    May be she is catching up on sleep, whilst on this site she doesn't get much.

    I think Mel said she has birds. I hope they are all right. Dogs have fur. Most of the birds we keep as pets come from warm climates.

    BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR....I am feeling for ya Colleen. We get fluke snow storms here as well and have gotten up in the morning to see 2-4 feet overnight. I really hate the snow, it's wet here, heavy and a pain in the back to shovel.

    Many two-dog nights ahead it sounds like. Thinking warm thoughts for you and yours, Colleen.

    She's got her dogs to keep her warm. In Australia, the aborigines used to sleep in humpies and their dogs (dingoes) were their blankets. They must have scratched all night long.

    We have certainly missed her tonight,2 newbies joined and posted degrading questions and comments to Country bumpkin and SunnyB.Hope all is well for Colleen.

    LOL, warm.....nope, cool to cold. Warmth came when I'd get in the bronco and just drive around for lack of something better to do ;)

    So this is where the party was lol. Yes, my dogs helped to keep me warm. I have a waterbed so when the power went out, so did the heater for the bed. A few quilts on the mattress and my little dogs and we stayed warm enough.  The room was cold however and I kept waking every few hours. The birds were good as I had a small propane heater in their room. They only had to go a couple of hours with no heat when I'd sleep then I'd get up, run their heater till the room warned up again and then I'd shut the heater off and try to get a couple more hours of sleep. This would only be at night time when I couldn't watch for a fire, I do not trust open flame propane or gas heaters. Daytime was OK as the temps outside would get into the high 50's or  60's and that would help take some of the chill out of the house.  Boredom was the worse part of it I think, that and not knowing when the power would come back on. It was tough waking up hoping the electricity was back on only to find that it was not. A week is a long time to wait but it could have been worse, it could have been 2 weeks. So anyway, we are all safe and sound with little damage to the house. We were lucky. :)


    Thank you so much to everyone here who thought about us and send good wishes. The wishes did help.

    Collen thank god you are ok and your babys yes I do know what you mean about propane it can be leathal and the open fire you will have to get a fire gard just it happens again then you can all cuddle up in the sitting room and sleep on the sofa and all keep warm lets hope it doesnt happen again what a exsperiance!!! glad your back love ya xxxx
