I was hesitant to post at first, thinking that someone would post it. But then I found out that we didn't even make national news! Worst October blizzard in the recorded history of the Black Hills!
Anyway, some highlights:
Thursday, Oct 3rd, cold rain all day.
Friday, Oct 4th, early morning it turned into snow, and snowed (with HIGH winds) for 24 hours. Power went out all over the grid around 6-7pm that evening. Some places were only out a couple hours, while others STILL do not have power!
We ended up getting our power back extremely late Saturday evening.
Over 70,000 horses and cattle lay dead because of this storm.
And...it looks like we're in for another blizzard Sun/Mon time-frame, with people still out of power....

Well that sucks! I hate winter & thankfully haven't had to deal with anything like that yet. I hope that's not a sign of what our winter will be like too. Hope you are stocked up & have a way to keep warm if you lose power again. Being socked in with all the kids can get to you too. Too bad they can't have them do their school work online when this kind of stuff happens. Hang in there.
