Sandy Aftermath

I am home today.  My boss said we could all work from home.  Roads opened at 8:00 am.  But there is no power in our office building.  I am going to try to connect to our office computers at 9:00 am, to do some work.

We still have no power here in the house - we lost it about 5:30 last night.  We put on the generator from 9:00 to 11:00 last night to keep the freezer and the refrigerator going strong (and to see what was going on in the world on TV).  Then we put the generator back on at 6:30 this morning to again take care of the freezer and fridge.  Since I have a gas stove, I was able to heat water for a bath and was able to make coffee in an old-fashioned percolator on the stove top.  Eggs and toast for breakfast on the stove top also!  We will shut off the generator later this morning.

We lost a part of our fencing in the back yard, but we can't complain.  The fence can be fixed.  There is a tree across the road up the street and that is why we have no power.  Once the crews get out and about in the state, I am hoping to have power in a day or two!

We have a couple of outlets that I can use to charge the computer and my cell and use the crock pot!

We will manage!  I feel like I am on an adventure!

I'm so glad you are all okay. Remind me to take you with me if I ever lose my mind and want to go camping. LOL
