What do you do without power ? :(

Posted by   + Show Post
We was without power for somewhere around 53 hours ! Dd was lost without technology ! No fb no games no wii ect ! She had been sick so playing in snow was out if the question! We are lucky we had family here on the farm with wood heat or it would have been very cold in these 12 inches of snow!!

What does your kids do? Any tips on how to keep food preserved ? We lost about 2 hundred dollars in the freezer and thankfully our pipes didn't freeze!

 If it is that cold out, put the freezer food outside.  We would go to one of our parent's house, grandma's or someone with power for showers.

 One time we were without power for several hours.  We made pancakes in the fireplace.  The boys thought it was great!
