Events: Good Night, Irene!! And Good Riddens!

I hope everyone who has been affected by Hurricane/Tropical Storm "Irene" is through the worst of it and doing well by now.  We lost power with the onset of Tropical Storm "Irene" at 10 a.m. Sunday morning and are just now getting our power back.  
Other than the loss of a couple of tree branches, we had no other damage but the overall loss of power to the area was amazing.  It didn't seem like such a big deal but evidently Irene took it's toll on major wire connections over a widespread area.  
We have been surviving with candles, flashlights, an old fashioned battery operated radio and some hard to find, well placed, ice in our freezer to try to stave off defrosting.  We are most thankful to be returned to this century as I realize that I was not cut out for life in the 
Little House on the Prairie.  "Roughing it" is not for me.....

SO happy to hear! I have been concerned about you and a few other bloggers! Still have not heard from several of them. Amazing the power of weather!
I do love the modern conveniences and I am sorry you were without power for so long!
Welcome back!

Isn't life adventurous without the things we all take for granted?? In Plainville we got our power back Wednesday evening and then Comcast came back online late yesterday afternoon. It was so exciting to read without holding a flashlight and my refrigerator has never looked cleaner or more empty :)
