Thursday morning around 9:00 AM the lights started flickering at the ol el' rancho. Power went completely off and didn't come back on till Friday night 11:00 PM! Has been a crazy last few days. These Montana Spring storms are unbelievable. It snowed over a foot and a half in a day. The wind was blowing 50-60 mph, couldn't see one thing. Roads were closed all around Lewistown so we were literally stuck here! Jaxon, Haeli, Weston, Mom, Dad and I were all stuck at the party house. We have a wood stove and a huge fireplace so we kept the fires going and tried to stay warm. We had six water bottles on hand for the six of us. To top it all Haeli has a bladder infection and all the doctor said was to drink lots of water to help it. So she was out gathering snow and boiling it on our grill. Last night around five Haeli and I drove into Lewistown and raided Aunt Jans shower. We couldn't take being dirty anymore!
Looking back on it now I can kinda laugh but it wasn't very fun having no electricity. I remember back when I was little I'd love when the power would go off but I've grown to love having heat, a hot shower, a blow dryer, cell phone, music, light etc...Definitely thankful for electricity!
Haeli and I rounded up all the candles we had. This is how we would see at night after it'd go dark!
This was the view out our front window:) lovely right?
