    Right before Christmas one year, we had a big storm and the power was out at our condo for SEVEN DAYS. What made it even more frustrating is that everyone AROUND us had power -- even the other side of the condo complex. My daughter was home from school visiting to boot. Thank goodness I had a fireplace; we stayed warm and I got out the big spaghetti pot and rigged up a way to have boiled water going on the fire constantly for coffee, kitchen sink baths, dish washing, etc. Me, her, Mable the Bulldog, Lucy and Sushi (cats) all slept together on a big queen size blow up bed in front of the fireplace. I cheerfully told my daughter, "Hey, it's like playing "Pioneer"!" Thank goodness Rhiannon was born in the modern era; she is NO PIONEER. Had she been Laura Ingalls, "Pa" would quickly tired of her constant kvetching and would have shot her and buried her out behind the chicken coop.

    My thoughts are with those suffering horrible losses....it's heartbreaking.

    @ChanelAndBrutus - sending love and warmth to you guys! We are without power too. Thankfully my Gramma is putting up with us and my parents in her little house (4 adults, a teen, a baby and two dogs extra). Go somewhere warm! It's getting too cold to be without heat!!!
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Thank you sweetie! I would be more concerned if we had young kids! Brutus and Chanel nuggle me and we keep each other warm! It's not too bad yet!

    WOW I'm glad this thread is still alive and rolling along, I havent had the chance to check in, since doing the new warehouse job, and part of it is replenishing all the stuff from the Hurricane and loading up for Christmas. yea we are busy... and I'm not used to this type of work, so I'm SORE and Very tired... Please keep, keeping in touch to the best you can ! ! ! even though Delaware was directly in the path, it seems we were very fortunate (compared to NJ) the Beaches in Delaware were clobbered...but most of those homes are 'summer' homes --

    Ya all in our thoughts...

    It seems EVERYONE checked back in, who originally posted and that Everyone has survived - some have had damage, some others have not. But I'm glad to see 'All the Family' checking in, and everyone who passed along messages of those who couldnt check in for a while.
