On Friday I woke up and was told there was no school. The day before kids at school were saying that there would be a snow day, but I didn't believe them. Well, when I looked outside I could see why we had no school. Down the road there was a big tree that had fallen on an electric wire. At my house we had no power, so that made an exciting weekend.
It got very dark, very quickly on Friday night. We made a fire and tried to keep in as much warmth as possible. My mom read us a book of stories to us as we tried to keep warm in many layers of blankets. We tried to heat up as much food from our refrigerator as we could with the heat of the fire. My dad took out our camping stove and made us tea and some other delicious food. The whole night was spent cuddling by each other and playing games, telling stories and doing basically whatever we could to spend the time.
The next day was much colder. That night the warmth of the fire could keep my sister and I from freezing as we slept, but tonight we would have trouble staying as warm. The whole day was pretty much spent by finding fire wood because the night before we had used all of our few bundles up. All throughout New Castle, Rye, North Hampton, Hampton and Stratham there was no wood to be found. Finally we found someone who sold us a great amount that will probably hold us until Christmas, maybe longer. After we had completed our mission, we went to our friend's house, who had electricity, and we took showers, watched movies, played games and emptied our freezers. It was very fun until we had to go home to the "Antarctic", or that's at least what it felt like. Luckily we could all find heat snuggling togather.
Our weekend ended with heat! We finally got electricity late Saturday night and we had a nice end to our adventure.
