This morning my Mom talked with Calvin's Mawmee on the phone so we thought some of you might like an update!
Don't worry about Calvin, the only chillin' he's doing in Chillaxin in front of the fireplace on his snuggly bed! His Mawmee did say it was pretty darned cold in the house though, 53 degree's! Their generator went out in the middle of the night so Uncle Ted took it to Home Depot to see if they could fix it. It's just a small generator but they were able to run the refrigerator and a small portable heater from it.
They might get the furnace running either from their generator or someone else's, not sure. The temperature outside was only 28 degree's so none of the ice was melting at all. Mawmee Laura started feeding the birds and it's keeping everyone entertained : )
Someone offered them a warm place to stay but they didn't want to leave home. It's too difficult to transport 6 cats and a dog, besides Laura would never leave her babies! It could be a while though. Here's the website for the company that provides their power: http://www.lgeenergy.com/storm/default.asp It's not looking good.
If we don't hear from them by Sunday morning, my Mom is calling again. Oh yeah, their phone is working and they have hot water. Kind of chilly getting out of the shower! Brrrr . . . Mawmee Laura could use the laptop with dial up but Uncle Ted needs it to check on things for work and the battery was getting low.
Hope that helps.
Love you Calvin!!!
