I want to give a big thanks to all that have messaged me or sent me gifts to get through the power outage! You don’t know how grateful mommy and I are. Mom was jumping up and down with joy when she saw that I got picked as Diary of the Day! But what really made her ecstatic was the fact that everyone sent us their sympathies and thoughts. It really made our Christmas!
I wish I could gifts to all of the furs that sent us gifts, unfortunately, we only have four zealies left (but mom is going to ask Santa for some more!). All I can say is you have moved us through this hard time. The lights have come back, and I am cozy and warm, but what really made me feel loved was all of your thoughts and compassion.
Of course, a big thanks goes out to the people who worked to get our power on. Thank you! More than half of the people who lost power in my state have got it back. To those who don't, I will be thinking about you!
Happy Holidays & Stay Safe,

It was 2:30 a.m. I was sleeping in my mothers arms. The pellet stove was roaring with fire, keeping our home nice and cozy. The next thing I know, darkness. Cold air accumulated in the house, the lights didn’t return. My Granddad struck a match and the smell of sulfur reached my nose.
We are one of 400,000 in our state without power. It was Friday morning. Work and school was cancelled. Of course, I had no care in the world. My family seemed to keep leaving the house and returning with more candles. The humans huddled into thick coats and blankets. We had no lights, no water, and no heat. When night came once more, we let drowsiness sink into our bodies and braved the cold.
Morning came, still no electricity. By 1:00 pm I was in my carrier (Which I hate). My mommy put Scamp and me into the car and we drove off. The car (which I hate) sputtered down the icy road. The trees were all bent, this way and that. The landscape was so surreal, it looked like the world was painted in white. The snow sparkled and glittered as we drove down the highway.
An hour later we arrived at a pet friendly motel. I just got settled in and exploring the surroundings. I don’t like knew places, but at least there is heat and my family. I don’t know when we are going home, but I hope soon. I never realized how much my family and I depended on electricity.
Let’s hope all other furs and humans get though this storm safely!
