Snowpocalypse 2021, day 2 in Day to Day

Our power came back between 9 and 10 last night, so we slept well. No water, unsure if it’s frozen pipes or the water station being down, so we’ve literally boiled snow so we could flush a toilet. Life is so surreal right now.

We did lose power again for 3-4 hours, grateful it came back. We’re charging laptops and a battery for the neighbors and ran an extension cord to the property line for them. They’re still without power, no idea why. Some of us have hardly lost it and others are going on 36 hours. JFC.

We have plenty of random foodstuffs to keep us and 2 cases of water. This is only supposed to go for a couple more days. Thankfully my classes have been suspended..

OMG YAY WE HAVE WATER!!! It was the water station, not the pipes!! TFGGGGG.

Neighbor is bringing over smoked chicken. I’m gonna die of happiness.

It seems like it is terrible all over the country right now.

It really is, and it's super random who has power and who doesn't. Ours has gone on and off a few times, but our neighbors have been without power since yesterday early AM.

Last time we lost power I was 5 minutes from firing up the BBQ when it came back on. Bloody awful when it happens, I can't believe how bad you guys have had it. Love that your neighbours are so lovely though.

They have been awesome. I just wish we could do more.
