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.....
