"Being snowed in isn't so bad;" she decided. "There's still plenty to do. We could make spaghetti and meatballs, we could take a nice long hot bath, we could call friends, we..."
"Um. Can't do any of those things. The water pipes just froze... and the cell phone battery is dying."
"Please shoot me now."this post.
Snowed in for two days. Alone.
Water pipes froze from Sunday through Wednesday.
Cell phone battery dying (with charger elsewhere).
When I tried opening my front door against a foot (or more) of snow, it actually BROKE THE DOOR.
Thanks to some VERY good friends, I finally got the driveway plowed out on Tuesday.
My water pipes finally un-froze on Wednesday evening.
Got the phone charged up.
The door is currently fixed with duct tape until spring, at which time I will need a new door.
It's official; I'm an old crotchety lady who hates winter.
I'm also an old crotchety lady who's turning another year older on Saturday the 11th. (!)
