It is 12:25 Sunday, 12.30.12. We have just returned from dinner and a double feature to find our power has been restored! Yippppeeeeeeee.
I was so sure Peanut would be a pupsicle when we got back, but they came through. After the storms began on Christmas Day, we lost power. And for the past four days we have been cold. Thank goodness we have a gas water heater. I don’t think I could stand stinky guys for that long. We’ve cooked on an open fire in the backyard, suffered through a couple of cups of the worst coffee ever, cooked burgers on the grill and finally gave up and started eating out yesterday, twice a day!
So I am behind on everything, email, posts, my Etsy shop, laundry (which piles up at an alarming rate when you’re wearing multiple pieces of clothing and huddling under every blanket in the house), and just about a million other things.
I can’t imagine living for a month without power. The folks who endured Sandy and its aftermath have more than my respect for their hardiness and perseverance.
At any rate, given time I’ll catch up.
