More about Sandy

So Sandy is still taking its toll on Southern CT.  I have power at my house, but we are without power at work.  We start up a generator every day at work and we get to do our daily work on our computers.  It isn't easy, it isn't fun, it isn't fast, but it does work.  So no complaints!

My mother in law lost a utility pole from her house.  It fell down in the wind, but she still had power.  The UI Power Company/Police put yellow tape around the area and you could still drive around her street, but you had to be careful!  Some idiot at 4:30 this morning drove right through the police tape and the power lines and pulled the pole OFF the house.  So, now she had no power.   As most of my readers know, Nonni (who will be 101 in a few weeks) lives with my mother in law and no power means no heat!  And heat to a 101 year old woman is a NECESSITY.  Nonni was moved to my sister in laws house and will stay there until power is back on.  But at this point, who knows when that will be.  My mother in law called the UI Power Company and was told because Nonni was 101 years old, she would get on the "first priority" list.  When she called again 7 hours later, she was told there was no "first priority" list and she would have to wait it out like everyone else.......

I'm not sure where to go with that.  But really UI, you are sucking wind today in my eyes! 

I am supposed to babysit Nonni tonight, so I'm not sure where I'll be!

It looks like Milford (work) will have power by Monday.  Unfortunately, tomorrow will be another long, cold, dark day at work.  I wear a winter coat and fingerless gloves.  It works!  But the darkness bothers my eyes!  I will hope for a lot of sun tomorrow. 

And we go on.......

I hope you are all faring well!

God bless your Nonni! I hope her electricity is on by the time I write this. I'm sure she enjoys the visit, but will be glad to return home.

I'm so sorry for all the damage and hassles the storm has caused you -- I hope they get your power back on at work and at Nonni's asap.
