I had a whole list of things I had planned to write about, but I can’t for the life of me think of what they were. So, I’ll just babble off the top of my head…I’m pretty good at that!
We are kicking ourselves for deciding that we didn’t really need a generator as the power always comes back on right away. We are going on our forth night with no power. It’s below freezing outside and not much warmer inside. I never thought I would see the day that I could see my breath in my own house. Mimi is staying with my folks who have a generator in their RV. KT has been staying with us, but tonight is with her best friend who just got their generator repaired. We were invited to stay as well, but Shaun needs to be in the house to make sure his tropical critters are warm enough. I thought that I would stay with him to keep him company. (I’m not sure if I am loyal, sweet or really, really dumb!)
The storm was pretty scary. The winds were howling at 75 mph and you could hear the tree branches slamming down on the roof. We had no idea how bad it really was until we headed out the next morning. We thought that we would just take in a movie and when we got back the power would be up. The house three houses away from us has a tree fall onto it’s roof. There wasn’t too much damage, but really any damage at all is too much. There are trees and utility poles down all over the place. Wires dangling in the road are common. They say that we won’t have power in our area for at least another week. Not very fun.
I’ll check in when I can. Think warm wishes toward us!
