My Days at Starbucks after the Snowstorm

Posted on: February 16, 2010

Here in Dallas Thursday Feb 11 we had beautiful snow. About 12 inches of snow, which breaks a lot of records. But after being without power and hot water for two days, I had a few laments.

I was very disappointed at how Friday turned out for me after the snowstorm. I had a lot to do, but no way to get there. There was no way to get out of my uphill driveway. I wound up with no power until Saturday evening. I was highly motivated to seek out warmth. My house was so cold. I spent a lot of the day at Starbucks on Friday and Saturday. Starbucks was packed, warm and steamy with people and their day old beards and unshowered bodies (since they also had no hot water). Reminiscent of a wet dog. I know that smell well. Since I have three. Dogs, that is.
It all ended Saturday evening when, mercifully, the power came back on.

That snowfall left the Dallas area with a beautiful backdrop for Christmas cards! It was very nice and lasted much longer than I expected after the snowflakes stopped falling.

We lost power for about 8 hours. Everybody has a power-loss story that top the last one told! When the snow started falling, everybody was excited and in awe, however, reality set in real fast when the cold air crept in and stayed around for a while!!

I bet Starbucks and all the local bookstores were crowded with customers looking for a WARM place to cuddle up with a good book!

P. S.: That’s the cutest little dog!
