The snow was really wet and heavy, and the trees still had all their leaves. And apparently, the way sap runs though trees changes in the winter, to make them better able to stand up to the snow. Who knew? Well all of those factors resulted in trees just going down all over the place, which meant that for the second time this fall, we had massive power outages all over the state.
We were lucky and never lost power. Shhh don't tell anyone.
We did lose a lot of trees though.
Halloween was on Monday after the storm, and it got cancelled for a lot of the towns. We still had people come trick-or-treating at our apartment though and we dressed Alex up in his monkey costume from his Grandma Tag!
And we carved Monsters Inc. pumpkins. Dan did Sully, I did Mike, and I also carved a little Boo in her monster costume for Alex.
We got through the storm just fine and went on with life, but a lot of people were out of power for a week or longer. I'm sooooooo thankful that we didn't have to worry about keeping heat or finding a hotel.
