I was upset about the trees. STill am, but this is a quick post just to update. I’m using precious generator power and a dial-up to give explanation to my lack of responses on emails.
We’ve been without power two days. Since we’re on a well, that means no water, either. We had filled up bathtubs so we’d have refill water for toilets and it’s been fun running through the house with freezing cold pitchers of water for the half bath. My bathroom is always cold in the winter, but right now, it’s unbelievabe. So, the halfbath is closest to the fireplace–hence the running with cold pitchers. <g>
I never realized just how much we rely on electricity for stuff. I’ve been boiling water for washing, etc.
So, we finally got a small generator today–which was a miracle considering the rush on these babies. It’s got the heat going in the downstairs, so we’re trying to figure out how to keep it from just floating upstairs. The refrigerator and freezer are going, but I have to cook up a lot of thawed things. I can plug in something electric here and there. (So of course I get online to see if I had any full or partial requests–uh, none.)
My flu got worse so this has been interesting to say the least. Anyway, I’ll obviously be posting little the next few days, but will return as soon as I have things going a little better here.
