    What? Your power was out for way too long! Hope you are now safer, warmer, and always able to access the internet.

    Great that you got power back just in time for Christmas. I lost power on Christmas eve in an ice storm about 8 years ago and didn't have power for 2 days. It does truly suck. And yes, thank God it wasn't worse.

    I know you feel, during the hurricanes here back in 2004 we went two weeks without power.

    Perhaps, we have just witnessed the Dark side of Christmas, or what it has become. Some people had the entire week off to enjoy family and friends, and share in the holiday traditions of overeating and merry-making, but their entire focus seems to be on some soon forgotten stuff that didn't arrive by a particular date.

    Christmastide is a Season lasting from Christmas Day until the Epiphany (Jan. 6), commonly called the 12 days of Christmas.
