We lost power around 8:00 on Monday night and got it back last night around 8:30. Kudos to all the hardworking folks that have been pushing hard 24 hours to try and get electricity back to the millions of people that are still without power.
The storm here wasn't too bad,no near misses like with Irene,thankfully. We did have a couple of road closures near the house.We used the propane grill,and the Coleman stove to cook. We used water from the pool to fill the toilet tank so we could flush . The oil lamps and candles were out last night.We have a small generator so we could at least keep the fridge going and have a radio on. I would like the radio stations to offer more info-if I don't have Internet,how am I suppose to check your website for cancellations??? We didn't do any dishes,so that is on the agenda for today. I have been fighting a cold,so I spent the last couple of days mostly in bed sleeping (thanks to some nighttime cold medicine!).I still feel like poo today,but I think I am on the mend. Zach was bummed that he had to go back to school today.
I feel so bad for the folks down in the NJ/NY area,and for the folks in the WV area that got hit by the blizzard. I hope that they can get back to their homes soon and begin their lives again.I am keeping them in my thoughts,as well as those who lost their lives.
It's raining again here,but at least there is no wind.We did get a bad thunderstorm that rolled in last night-our newly restored electricity went out a couple of times,but just a power bump,thankfully.It lasted only a few seconds. The storm was quite strong,though,
and rolled past as quickly as it rolled in. We will be feeling the effects of Sandy for the next few days with off and on rain showers.
I just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that things were OK here. There are still over 50,000 people in NH without power. We are among the fortunate.
It's still a Fabulous Planet,even if the weather can be less than.
Have a nice day....and Happy Halloween!
