25: Didn't sleep much, and have been terrified for hours

The snow never once let up as the night stretched on interminably.

Trees have been exploding or crashing to the ground all around us since at least midnight. One has hit, and others may too.

I'm so exhausted I can barely stand up. I've toted snow inside to melt all morning long. I've wiped snow off dad's car only to have it dump back onto it out of the sky.

We walked down the road and there are at least 9 trees down, most across the lines, between here and the closest neighbours. The lines are down at every single pole. Our pole between the barn and house is leaning at a fairly rakish angle. If it goes, it'll take both connecting lines down.

I'm going to sleep in the guest room because it'll be safer, closer to mom and dad, and probably warmer since only one adjoining wall.

It's 19:34 and dad just fell asleep on the couch after we ate and were relaxing.

I nearly could've myself, and had said so apparently not loud enough to awaken him.

And oh yeah. We head a tree or large branch snap right then, too.

I have my phone in airport and the battery does amazingly better this way. Will have to remember.
