Good to hear from you again Trish! I hope you get your power back this weekend. How come Microsoft and the mall have electric? I guess it's just certain areas around you without power then, same as what happened with us when the power went out for a week. Our neighbors two houses away had power but the rest of the area was out, so we all took turns using their shower :) One thing you might want to do at home, is to section off the rooms, put up some plastic in open doorways so you can keep your main living area warmest at this time. We had to bring our mattress down to our livingroom and all the blankets, pillows, board games, etc. Close all other doors in the house to keep the cold air in those rooms and not in your living area.

Hang in there Trish!

Trish, stay warm and I hope that your electricity comes on soon. Our power went out during the snow storm last night, but luckily it came on a couple of hours later.
