broken record

It’s day four of no power.

I’ve lost my funny. It fled as far down the electrical wires as it could looking for a more entertaining host. It left when it realized this is ‘clean out the yucky fridge day.’ There is no humor in spoiled food.

Things are really much better here. The house is up to 70 degrees. I had a glorious long hot shower and I still have internet. Who needs lights? I’m going to try to boil water over a candle so I can have a cup o’ ramen for lunch, only because I’m sick to death of fast food.

Thank you to everyone for your offers of help! I really am fine. Especially in comparison to people with trees in their roofs, frozen pipes, or that are still holed up in hotel rooms. I have a good friend who has had a generator going this whole time, but now her furnace broke down last night. Oy.

It would be harder if the boy was here, but knowing that he’s safe and happy at my MIL’s until whenever we get power back is definitely a relief. It’s easy to just take care of myself.

But did I mention there’s more bad weather coming tomorrow? Yeah.

    Lalalalalalaaaaaa!! I don’t see or hear that weather forecast.

    And I’ll be doing the fridge clean out soon. Even though I got everything out it is starting to develop a bit of a funk in there. Nothing a few Clorox wipes can’t fix but not pleasant either.

    Oh… the electricity thing is what would get to me. It is all so romantic and “olden days” for a couple of hours, then the proverbial sh@* hits the fan… oh, that’s right, the fan runs on electricity! But anyway, I am happy that your little guy is nice and warm and safe and happy with his grandparents and that things are looking… well, lighter?

    I hope all is well very, very soon. You guys certainly got hit where it hurts.

    It’s Monday evening, and we finally have power and water. YEAH!! The furnace is up and running again… and the house is a balmy 53º. Hope to hear that you’re out of the dark soon, too.

    Seriously, I would have packed up and left a long time ago. You’re kind of my resilient hero right now. You don’t need the funny because you have the strength. And the internet.
