    Default Another Rough Day!

    So we were without power all day again today. It was really rough! The temp got up to 98 degrees today. I was getting really nervous with our little man. He was having a really rough time. My parents, who live in the boonies, got their power back in the AM. They don't have A/C, never have, but at least they had fans! I was having a really hard time getting Tubs cool. I ended up taking him to my parent's house and giving him a cool bath....he needed on anyway. Then we put him in his kennel and placed fans around him. Finally, he cooled down! When we got home tonight we finally had power! The house was 90 degrees inside, so we closed it all up and now it is finally cooling down and Tubs is finally relaxing. My husband and I went out for a run and the houses on the streets around us are still out, so we are very lucky! I just wanted my power back on for Tubs and the food. I was fine not having a TV, lights, etc.! I am so glad my baby boy can finally relax....now I can too!!!! Praying for everyone else out there who is still without power and hoping they get back up and running soon!!!!!!

    Poor boy! I was wondering if any of my fellow ebn pals were affected by the power outage. I am glad you all can finally relax now!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    I guess it's time to get Tubbs his own generator....LOL

    I know the feeling. No one has AC here in Washington really, but I bought a stand alone unit for Mable when I used to live in my condo. ha ha It worked good. You plugged it in and vented the hot air up the fireplace flue. Sadly, the Ex got it in the divorce. Pffft.

    I think you are right.....no one has any generators left at this point, but when all of this settles down and the prices of the generators go down I will be getting on. Hurricane Irene was a candle blow compared to this unpredicted storm!!!

    so glad you finally got power! We have a generator for backup if needed, worth every penny for piece of mind. We initially got ours for NASCAR races in our RV but it has proved to be useful in summer when we lose power from monsoon storms. Luckily the power has come back on in just a few hours and the storms cool things off for a while, but if a big one hits we will be ready. Reading your post has made me certainly come up with a game plan if it does happen!

    I'm so glad you finally got your power back!!! We lost power for just over 24 hours last summer, but we were lucky that it hit at a time when the temps were a little lower than normal so none of the bullys really suffered too much!!!!
