Hi Athena& Mackenzie
and awesome wonderful Mom Melanie!

Oh I have been so out of touch with everything lately for the past five days we have had no power and everything was shut down all over our town! No gas,diesel,no fast food or grocery stores,no Mall no nothing and we were made to stay off the roads! My Mom on Friday night when our power went off,called skin sis to come and spend the night here because she needed her to sleep with 3 of us to keep us warm as the temperature went down to 30 degrees in the house,my Mom couldn't use the coal stove because the winds were whipping at 77 mph and blew everything out of the stove into my Moms face! Mom was so scared that some of us would die before morning,skin sis slept with Mario,Peepers and Celine and Mom slept with me,Kallie and Candida! She wrapped us all in blankets and put us under her sweatshirt and coat and fleece bathrobe,skin sis did the same! We had to wait til the afternoon on Saturday before the winds died down so my Mom could start the coal stove for heat! Everytime she tried to stoke it up for the nightfall the thing would die on her and she went through coal and wood like you read about! Then on Sunday night the stove died in the middle of the night and it got really cold really fast! Mom had to clean out the whole stove and start from scratch and work fast before all the heat in our tv room was gone! She had enough coal to start with but the stove kept dying on her so everytime she had to start it again she went through more coal,and there was no coal to be bought either! NStar kept telling my Mom it would be Thursday before we got power again! My Mom was frantic,she thought for sure we'd be dead before then! The rest of the house was frigid and she could only make canned food on the coal stove! My Mom survived on bread and water for the past 5 days to spare the rest of the food for my Dad who was working 24/7 in the storm to help make the roads safe! He had about 2hrs of sleep in 5 days! My Mom couldn't even make him coffee or sandwiches after Friday! We were all getting antsy in those small cages and there were four of us in one cage and we started to fight with each other after the 3rd day,Mom tried to let us out one by one but she was watchful because of the stove! Mom kept frantically calling NStar but all they kept telling her was Thursday! The cold was unbearable and my Mom feared for our lives! We got to sleep with her several nights in a row as Mom didn't trust the coal stove to stay lit! My Nana went with my cousins to Mom's sisters house who had power but the day she was leaving to go home,her power came back yesterday,my cousin Marty dropped dead! It was so devastating! My cousin Bella is so upset about it and keeps looking for Marty,Bella is a CAG! Nana can't even bury Marty because there's too much snow here! We got more than 18 inches!Nana had to remove Marty's cage from her bird room as Bella is very upset by his not being there!My Mom was running out of coal today and the neighbor
