This year Thanksgiving was a two day celebration at our house. The weather decided to not cooperate and leave us without electricity for over 24 hours. The heavy wet snow started on Wednesday afternoon and continued till early Thanksgiving morning. It left us with about 9 inches that weighed down trees and power lines. In the whole state of NH about 200k people were left without power.
This is what it looked like after only a few inches. You can imagine what it looked like with about 6 more inches of snow.
Luckily my sister who lives in a city area lost power briefly so we were able to head to her house for a great turkey dinner. But we still had a 25 pound fresh turkey to cook. We woke up Friday morning to see flashing numbers on our clocks. So we got up put the turkey in the oven and celebrated Thanksgiving again.
And no Thanksgiving day feast is complete for me unless I have this yummy deliciousness – sweet potato casserole.
Despite our lack of electricity on the actual day of Thanksgiving it turned out to be a great holiday weekend. I have so much to be thankful for and I am glad I got to spend some quality time with my family.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving celebration.
