Nor-Easter?

Howís the noe-Easter treating you?
We have no electricity
No heat.
All I could do is walk the dog.

I have some Indian club exercises I can do from memory

Canít even use the computer to play dvd cause I have no electricity 🤣
When night falls all you can do is go to bed

I also had my kindle to read, that is good

Dog and I are sitting on couch trying to couch potatoís but we canít even generate enough heat to bake. Lol.

They have claimed state of emergency !!!!

Rather this than ❄️.

Good thing I donít mind fruit and water. And peanut butter and jelly

I will never need a reason to eat peanut butter.

I hope you are safe and power comes back soon.

Ds1 and his girlfriend are in Boston and lost power 30 hours ago and still don't know when it will come back on. Ds1 feasted out of the refrigerator before the food spoiled and is now getting impatient and frustrated. He's lucky because his gf works in human resources for a major restaurant company and they hung out in one of the restaurants yesterday eating free food, watching tv, and using wifi. Hoping it returns soon.

I love peanut butter so much. I haven't been able to stop eating it lately.

Hope your power comes back soon! It's no fun, that's for sure.

Here in RI, I didn't lose power. But with the strong winds my grill cover blew off of the grill and I found it in the yard. The same with my patio cushions and pillows...time to bring those indoors, I suppose. In past years, we've had downed trees, completely uprooted and falling across the sidewalk or road. Another time a tree in our side yard nicked the roof and lattice of our neighbor, and missed their sunroom by an inch.

Yesterday I went to MA, where I do most of my grocery shopping. Many stores closed (without power) and street lights were out only about five miles or so from me. One store (they were open) but could only buy dry goods as coolers/freezers were out. The same store has been without power before and no cash registers were working, during a previous storm.

I love peanut butter! Have been adding it to oatmeal, along with vanilla whey protein powder...so good! But, yeah....you need power for that!

Boston is only an hour drive for me, and I heard from a number of folks (MA residents) that were without power. National Grid is going to be busy.

We lost power Tuesday night - Wednesday morning. I thought the house was going to get washed down the street Tuesday night, it was

Still high winds, downed limbs around, etc., but thankfully we've had power since yesterday morning.

Pat - what happened? Are you okay?



Update: my son in Boston just got his power back. 32 hours - could have been worse.

Oh yes, we are okay! Sorry if I sounded too dramatic. The wind and rain were scary, that's all. But we are unscathed thank goodness. It's just messy everywhere here.

This is history for me.
My son did come by because I let the phone die

I am still no power no heat.

I donít know how many hours itís been but this is like tsunami mess here.

Glad itís night so I will just go to bed.

Sitting in the car now to charge the cell phone.

My mind is thinking too much. I have on 3 layers of clothing and a hat and scarf.

All we can do is shelter in place. Gas station lines are like when we had to be in line like Ĺ hour years ago

This is so hard. We need power to be at peace .

I donít know what to say. They need to call in National Guard to get this power on expediently. ☹️

I'm sorry, Cheryl. I saw some estimates for power to be restored aren't until 10/30. My son's was back before the estimate and I hope yours is too.

We have well water, so no running water when the power is out - no toilets, showers, hand washing, etc. It's absolutely awful.

Hang in there and I hope you have electricity soon.
