A New 4 Letter Word

Sorry for the bad quality photos and for the weird way this post is laid out.
Sometimes Blogger and I get along, sometimes not.

My MIL says that in New England they have a four letter word we don't (or should I say didn't) have here in NM....SNOW.

We could add a new 4 letter word to that list...COLD.
Yesterday NM was the coldest state in the US! 
Now that doesn't happen too often.

We are on day 2 without running water.  Our pipes are still frozen.
Thank God for friends who let us shower, gave us firewood and let us fill up our 5 gallon water jugs.

It was a bit of an adventure, survival of the fittest the first day.

Today, we are not digging it at all.
We need to do laudry, dishes and the house is a MESS (just found another 4 letter word!).

Our city is shutting of power/gas, forced black-outs to save energy. 
We have not had any of our stuff shut off thank God. 
Our electric heaters and fireplace is what is keeping us warm.  (Gonna hate to see the electric bill!  Yikes!)

How cold is it where you live?  Did this last snow storm hit you?

I cannot believe how crazy this weather has been! Snow in NM? Good grief. And not a little, either!

Unfortunately up here- SNOW and COLD go hand in hand. In my house- MESS otfen makes a common appearance. Sorry to hear you have frozen pipes!

Well, like Ami, I live in the snowy, cold north though this year has been warmer than usual and we actually got rain today (good until it freezes solid tonight!) That is crazy to see your photos, though! Frozen pipes and forced blackouts don't sound very fun, either!
