Me and my Mom moved to Washington DC from Tokyo 5 weeks ago. I have never lived anywhere that had snow. Now I am alone in the house, snowbound without power. My Mom had to work late yesterday and didn’t get off until it was too late to get home because of the snow. I could have went to her friends a block away but I elected to stay home. I have plenty of food and activities to keep be busy and I thought it would be fun until the power went off. I woke up in the middle of the night and the lights didn’t work.I found 3 flashlights and my laptop was fully charged. My cellphone still worked and Mom called me so I wasn’t too worried. She is going to try to get home latter today. The worst thing is it is getting cold in the house, 51 the last time I checked. The heater is gas but needs electricity for the fan thing that blows out the heat. I don’t have a lot of winter clothes except for a coat and a jacket.
I had breakfast, eggs and hot oatmeal, and of course with my insulin. I’m being extra careful about not getting low because I probably couldn’t get any help if I got in trouble. I’m being careful about using my laptop, I’m going to have TV dinners later hopefully the oven will warm up the kitchen. I found out on the internet the power was expected to get back on at 12:30 AM, I don’t want to run out of battery power.
