it's the end of the world as we know itttttt

what a weekend... ok fine, i admit it. i was wrong. this storm is INSANE. here is what has been going on since saturday morning:
i had a golf lesson saturday morning at 10 am until 11:30 and it was colddddd, then i came home to two of my roommates watching tv. my boyfriend was (supposed to be) at work all weekend and we decided to all go to lunch at wendy's together.  this was when it started to snow. little did i know that would be the start of a lot of fast food... after wendy's, we came home and tried to watch some tv... then the power went out.  

at this point it was 4 pm and the three of us walked around the house aimlessly trying to figure out what to do.  for the rest of the evening we took walks around our block and listened to the trees crackle. it was crazy, every 30 seconds or so we would hear a tree break and we would frantically look around trying to figure out from which direction it was coming and run away from it. we almost got hit by a few falling trees. scary.

we played cards on saturday evening and spent the night in the basement since all of our bedrooms are on the top floor and a tree came very close to taking out one of the roommate's bedrooms earlier that evening.

we woke up on saturday morning to chaos.  there were trees everywhere. we decided to take another walk around the block.  it was a disaster area. 

that was sunday morning. now it's tuesday afternoon.  still no power, no internet, no cell phone (for me with sprint at least). they even cancelled halloween! however, that didn't stop boyfriend and i from dressing up! we have played a lot of cards, watched hocus pocus last night, and have been running our heat for an hour or two every night with the help of a generator so we don't freeze.  our roommate has been chainsawing up a storm, and it has definitely been an adventure.  

i'm back at work this afternoon (but we are spending our time talking about the storm). so my posts will be sporadic while the power is out, and since east hartford schools don't have school all week, i don't anticipate having power anytime soon.

i guess my golf season is over :(
