Going Through Withdrawal!

Friday night, Robin, Gerry, Ryan (my sister, her fiancee, and my nephew)  and his friend Jake came to  to camp with us and go to the haunted house. We were all excited about sitting around the campfire and having a wonderful night. We did go through the haunted house. My sister wasn't planning on going to the haunted house, but I talked into it. I had great fun listening to her scream! The sitting around the campfire plan didn't pan out, it started to rain and it rained heavy all night long.

 We woke up Saturday morning to an unusual heavy wet snow fall. The snow flakes were coming down fast and were as big as waffles. Trees were falling on electric lines and causing major problems everywhere. We had a nice breakfast in the diner and my company left. They were anxious to get on the road.  
It never snows this time of year!

I went to work at the mall and found out that half the employees called out because of the weather. Needless to say I worked a very long day. After working over 10 hours, I came home to a very dark campground. I found out that we lost electric at 6:00 in the evening on Saturday. Thank God we live in a  motor home with a great generator. We had heat, water, TV, (antenna) lights and everything we needed, but we did not have Internet!  I was crushed, I could not read my favorite blogs, my email or look at facebook, what was I to do? I'll tell you what I did, I worked. Not only did my co-workers call out because of the bad weather and the slick nasty roads, they also called out because they didn't have electric.  Our electric came back on this afternoon. As soon as I got off work, I immediately got out my laptop and got caught up on my blog reading, my emails and of course facebook.

I'm telling you, this withdrawal stuff is tough!

Thanks for reading, life is good...........

Always fun when you can make your siblings scream:) Nothing better that a generator when the power goes out!

I NEED to have my internet fix every day or I become very cranky! Sure hope that early snow is not a portent of things to come this winter.

I just discovered your blog and it sounds like you are at the Hagerstown KOA. My sister (Billie) has a seasonal site there and they were there this past weekend for the power failure and snow. I was supposed to come up for the day and bring my mother but I also had the cold that is going around and with the weather forecast, I decided to stay home. I enjoyed today's post and will try to read some earlier posts.
