    Default A crazy day.....far from over!

    So a major storm blew through south Jersey last night around 1:30am. We lost power and when the dust settled it was a lot worse then we imagined! We are in a state of emergency and will not be getting our power back for 3-5 days. This was so much worse than hurricane Irene and it hit us without warning. Trees are down everywhere along with power lines and poles. I wouldnt mind all of this so much but no electricity means no A/C in 85-90the degree weather. I can handle it, but poor Tubs has had a rough day! I have been doing my best to keep him cool with his gel mat, a little fan and what little ice we have. All stores are without electricity too so i can't even take him to PetSmart to get out of the heat and tomorrow is suppose to be hotter! He is being a trooper though! All i have to say is no one was hurt (that I know of....can't watch the news....so that is a good thing). There will be a lot of grilling this week to save what is in our freezers and fridge and a lot of ice buying for Tubs and the rest of the food! I have pictures of the craziness that i will post once i am able to get on the computer. Don't mind the typing mistakes...this is on my phone. Anyone in South Jersey....hope you all weathered the storm and arw only waiting for electric!!!!!! I'll be back in touch soon!

    Thanks for posting @speechmom53 , i was reading about the E.Coast storms on CNN website and hearing about it on the news. This is really bad. Sadly, i understand there were some lives lost as a result of the storm. I hope your power comes back on sooner than expected. Take good care and keep us updated.

    Storms were really bad through where most of my family live in Ohio. My DIL said it's projected they will be without power at their apt. until July 7th. They are staying with her mom though and power was restored at her house last night.
