Keiko was doing the same...growling with every ice crash. Thankfully she was doing it from within a house with power. Hope yours returns soon!
Thanks! Good Keiko! Loud roof noises *are* suspicious.
Yikes. So glad you prepared on Thursday!
Latest estimate of power restoration is today at 4 pm. The power went on yesterday around midday for friends 2 kms closer to Palgrave. At least that means we can probably go to the dental office to refill water containers, have a shower, etc. We went to visit Mom overnight so we're currently enjoying a taste of civilization while our freezer melts.
I have a bbq...meat fest in Milton?!
Yum! Our power was out for about 40 hrs. We saved our frozen food by jamming it all - including stuff from the smaller fridge freezer - into our basement freezer with bags of ice taken from our back yard. We packed it full. Then we put most of our fridge food into a big cooler and took it to Mom's place where we kept feeding it ice. We only lost some fridge food we didn't have room for. (We put ice in the fridge before we left but it melted to water.) The warm food might have been OK but neither of us wanted to find out.
Other than that, our house seems to have survived! Unfortunately, we hear there is a lot of forest damage along our usual trails and we can see precarious branches and fallen trees right from our front door.
Glad all is getting back to normal for you.
When I left Midhurst through the wetlands today I felt like I was leaving Narnia! (or some magical place?)... and then it all came down pretty quick
I heard it would have been wise to wear a helmet in the woods today! Although with all the trees and branches coming down, I'm not sure a helmet would help much. It was beautiful though.
If we were staying home we could fire up our noisy and smelly generator from time to time to power up the well pump and fridge, but it's not the kind you leave humming along quietly. We have a pretty good system for functioning without it.
