We woke up at 6am without power. Our house was cold a dark. I put on many layers of clothes, harnessed the dog, and we sauntered through the snow all the way to John’s. Miraculously he had power. And heat. And a coffee machine.

Throughout the day we learned that there are 2.5 million people without power in Texas. It’s insanely cold right now. I’m so worried about everyone. Our houses are not even built for this.

When I went to check on my house in the afternoon (and get dog food and baking supplies) it was 36 F inside. We’re lucky we have a warm place to stay. Although Bartholomew the carousel horse is in our room and not doing a good job wearing his mask. Good thing he never goes anywhere.
