Power Outage

This morning I woke up a little after 6 and it was FREEZING! I tried turning on the heater but I couldn't get it to work. Then about an hour later I received this text:

Awesome. (But at least I wasn't just stupid and incapable of turning on a heater.) 
There's just something in the air when unusual things like this happen. It's annoying, but also a little exciting.

 An hour or two later I received this text:

It wasn't snowing outside but I checked the weather on my phone, it was a whoppin -10'! That's frigid. (we could have gone up to campus, but that would require a lot of effort and going out in the more-cold) So we all gathered in our front room huddled in blankets without light, heat, internet or anything. We were all starving because we didn't have anything to eat without using the stove, microwave or oven. (We're so dependent on electricity!) 
I did make hot chocolate with the water out of the tap... it worked for the first 2 minutes. But then it quickly lost its warmth. 

We were all home and bored so we decided to bring warm vibes to our apartment by building a fireplace out of paper! I did this my very first semester of college (and everybody thought it would look super dumb... but I did it anyway, and then everyone ended up LOVING it) I showed my roommates the pictures from that:
and they loved it too! (Even if it was floating above a couch)

So we made this:
Who doesn't love green brick? I mean, come on! That's getting into the Christmas spirit! 

Then we decided to clean our apartment since we were all still home and needing something to do:

Then about 11 we received a text saying power was restored on campus. So we got ready in our only source of light - the window

But classes still didn't start until 12:45. So, after all that, when there honestly wasn't ANYTHING else to do, I began studying.

A few hours later we eventually received power in our apartment. It was wondrous!
