Storm aftermath

Our area was hit by mega storms on Friday night.  My electric power is out!  Besides the fact we have no juice to power our computer (you can't imagine the withdrawal symptoms), we have no air conditioning!!  It is amazing to me that I grew up without air conditioning.  With temperatures reaching 100 to 103 ... we have been struggling.

But we are fine, our home is fine, our family is fine, all our pets are fine ... we are blessed!

I am briefly using my son's home for a web connection (and his wonderful air conditioning)!

It will be several days before we have electric - probably next weekend if the news reports are to be believed.  It was a regional event and more than a million folks were affected.   Once we are powered up, we will be cleaning out our fridge and freezer - and shopping for replacement stuff.  So postings will be spotty for awhile.



  1. It's good to know everyone is all right....

  2. Glad you and your family and pets are safe. Here's to hoping you get power back before they predicted...and be back online with a fridge full of fresh food!

  3. Glad you are all fine, food can be replaced!

  4. So sorry about your outage. A huge inconvenience. Glad to.learn you had no damage. Keep cool!

  5. I feel relieved to know that everyone is okay. In terms of power outage, check your neighborhood to see if others are without power also. Call to report the power outage, and keep in mind to call only once, okay? This is so that you'll keep the line open for other customers.
