We Have Power

It has been a crazy week. We, like a lot of people were affected by Hurricane Sandy but feel very grateful that our house is standing and that power has been restored to most of my area.

We were without for 6 days and while it wasn't easy, it wasn't hard for us. Thankfully we had a generator for a few lights and the fridge so we saved all our perishables. We had a TV that the kids could watch some DVDs on and we had heat from our wood stove.

Our home has a creek running through so we had plenty of water for flushing. We would make numerous trips so we could fill the tub and the kids helped.

My car was hit but more on that later. We are well and hope you are too!


  1. Glad you guys are all ok.

  2. Wow...I guess if it has to happen, yours is the situation you want to be in. Sounds like you had just enough 'luxuries' to keep you from going crazy, but few enough to make you grateful for everything when the power came back. I'm so glad to hear you guys are all right!

  3. Glad to hear you have power again and things weren't too bad.
