Surviving Snowpocalypse after the ColtsJanuary 7, 2014
It was an interesting weekend for sure. After a few days back at work last Thursday and Friday, I had an awesome time at the Colts game on Saturday and got to witness one of the most exciting comebacks in NFL playoff history. Had an awesome group that tailgated at Bakersfield before hand because of the weather, realized how small a world it is when I was talking to a few Marian graduates from the late 90’s who knew some mutual friends I raced with.
And then, Snowpocalypse hit. It was every bit as bad as predicted and for once the weather warnings weren’t an over-exaggeration. I’m fortunate that the house didn’t lose power, unlike part of my neighborhood and a good chunk of NW Indianapolis, about the worst thing that happened was that cable was out for 24 hours.
I kept the fire roaring in case power did go out and wound up taking in some friends and their family when they lost their power. We had a fun pow-wow as friends, I got to hang out with some awesome kids for a day and the dogs were spoiled by the attention. If anyone ever pondered how Zilla would be around little kids, he’s absolutely precious and didn’t mind the youngin’s climbing on top of him. Here are some photos from the last 36 hours.
Needless to say that a bunch of the work from the remodel was useful during the snowstorm and hosting a lot of people. The fire kept the house warm, the garage heater kept the pipes out there from freezing, a kitchen that was easy to cook and host and of course, the full bar. I survived, people are back home and I’m working from the couch today because it’s still nasty out. Hope everyone else made it through safe and without damage, I reached out to a ton of people to make sure they were okay and had a lot of people check on me. That’s what friends are for, right?
Keep diggin’ out,
