Thank goodness that our Dish Network didn’t go out during the most recent storm. My kid’s school and our jobs were closed for three whole days! The roads were really too bad to go anywhere. The first two days of the storm it would have been way to dangerous to venture out. Luckily we still had power and television. The kids went outside and played in the snow some. It was so cold that they would get worn out pretty easily. There wasn’t much to do around the house except watch television together. I think that it kept the kids from having a total meltdown and complaining of “boredom”. We curled up in the living room, where we have three big couches most of the time. My husband and I shared a couch and the kids would take turns sharing their couch with the dog ( who wouldn’t go outside because of the snow). There is a fireplace in the living room. We were very content for three days. If the power had gone out and television hadn’t worked, I don’t know what we would have done!
