On Monday we got about 8 inches of snow. Tuesday was gorgeous, but then it rained all night long and turned to freezing rain the wee morning hours. Everything was covered in icy snow!
Charlotte and I were awake for a feeding at 3 on Wednesday and got back to bed a little before 4am. Not long after that our power went out and Joel and I started seeing all sorts of fire engine lights and the like outside on our street. 30 minutes later a huge branch on a tree out our front window fell into the road and was quickly cleared by township workers. 30 minutes after that another HUGE branch fell, this time catching on the wire going over our driveway, which prevented the branch from hitting Joel's car.
We got really nervous because that tree is close to the window where Charlotte was snoozing peacefully, and thankfully, our friends came to rescue us at 6am. We hunkered down with them, took naps, ate, and hung out in the warmth. Last night some other friends had us over for dinner and gave us a bed to sleep in and a bassinet for baby Charlotte, a refugee in her first week of life :)
I don't think any of us anticipated Charlotte having her first sleepover at five days old, but we sure are grateful for sweet friends who take us in and love us well.
