Keeping Myself Amused During A Power Outage

A couple of nights ago, the night of the Academy Awards, I was sitting down to watch the anticipate show. Flash, dark the power went out!!!! We were having extremely heavy snow storm that took down the power lines. Our last power outage we were without power for three days, our neighboring towns were without for days and even weeks.
We lit the candles and settle in waiting for our power to return when I had an idea. "This was GREAT time to practice with my settings and flash outside." My husband thought I was nuts and tried talking me out of going outside but I was determined!!!!
I am so glad I did not listen to him, decided to go outdoors and tried taking a few images. You decide how did I do capturing the snow, beautiful snow scenery?

80th Laconia World Championship Sled Dog Derby 2009

I attended Laconia's Sled Dog Derby, February 14, 2009, always a fun event. Lakes Region Sled Dog Club The weather was cold, windy, sunny, did not deter large, spectators crowd.
You can feel and hear the excitement the dogs experience when they are ready to race, the barking, needing to hold them back from taking off until the count off, they love racing!!! The dogs are well cared for, you can see the attachment the owners have for their dogs.

Meredith, NH Docks, Church Landing Hotel

You will very often see me showing images of Meredith, NH, a beautiful resort town. Great eating places, shopping, hotels and boat docks, even scenic during the winter. Church Landing Hotel (you can see in the distance of my photograph), decorated in a comfortable, homey, rustic decor, with fireplaces roaring during the winter.
