We went without for 51 hours, which is far less time than many folks in our area who remain without power. I'm proud to see the way our community is responding with lots of schools and other facilities open for showers, lots of places for drinking and flushing water distribution and hot meals. I am thinking of the folks in Vermont who are cut off from so much help that they are relying on airdrops of supplies. It's rather mindboggling to think this storm affected folks from the Carolinas to Canada. I was cranky about being inconvenienced but really had no room to complain considering how much some folks have lost. I'm grateful we all are well.
During the storm we had to take Calypso 3 hours away to report for her internship program. That was a rather "interesting" drive to say the least. We made it and got her safely settled in and her adventure has begun.
I spoke to my dad in Maryland and he tells me the new house is still standing though part of the beach and a local road were washed away. My last load of laundry is tumbling around the dryer before I finish packing up for a long weekend away from responsibility. I'm taking a big stack of cheap books from the closing Border's store so even if the weather is crappy I will be happy. The men of Casa de Lime can fend for themselves a few days.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend and power, water, and homes are soon restored to order for those who are in chaos.
Now let us dance.
