I’m back. The power is still on. We seemed to be the last area to get power back today. Some had it before morning even. But for us it went off around 4 in the afternoon and came back shortly before 4 the next afternoon.
No doubt there are more dramatic and riveting accounts than mine. We were ok. No dead fish in the aquarium (no aquarium here). No washing machine stopped mid-load and left full of mouldering clothes. No freezer full of $1,000 of meat, going bad. I have heard others talking about each of those situations. For me it was not being able to wash or use the computer to communicate. Of course I missed playing games too but mostly I kept thinking of how I’d like to check all this out on the Internet and find out what was happening and when it would be fixed. Here I am now and I’m just doddering around really. Funny how that seems to work.
