It’s now Friday close to noon. Things are slowly returning to some semblance of normalcy. Well, “the new normal” anyway. We still don’t have power, and probably won’t for a while. I’m calling it glorified camping, so I don’t lose my mind. That just sounds more positive. It’s the little things..
We’ve been able to hook up to a neighbor’s generator, so we’re able to keep the fridge cold enough to save the food. And heat the place up so the birds, dog and us don’t freeze. We have gas, so we’re able to cook, and hot water. We were able to get gas, which is at a premium here right now, and very difficult to come by. No power = no deliveries and inability to pump what supply they do have. Not too shabby considering many don’t have anything, and some have lost it all.
Electricity is slowly being restored to neighboring towns, but the devastation here is huge, so it’s taking time. We’ll get it back eventually. Patience, Chace, patience! In the meantime, my friends and family are all safe. That’s all that matters, really. And yup, I am grateful. Things could be worse.
