Hurricane Irene wrecked a bit of havok here on the pond in Maine ~ we lost power midday on Sunday and got it back on yesterday. It was a challenge trying to keep the refrigerator running enough to keep from spoiling anything and luckily we have friends with an empty freezer to pop our stuff into!! I took my 'bath' in the pond ~ it was not tooooooo cold!! LOL!!
When you have no electricity, you realize how much you take it for granted! I couldn't do anything! I thought I might do some cutting, but I couldn't press my fabric! So that was out! Certainly couldn't sew! I did manage to get some reading done and a little bit of handwork, but that was all! I used my computer until the battery died then that was gone!
I am ever so grateful that the only thing we lost was power! Our home is surrounded by tall trees and not a one came down! Just a few small branches and dead twigs! The neighbor lost the top of his willow tree but it didn't hit his camp. Took a boat tour around the pond yesterday and many of our neighbors lost trees, but none appear to have landed on their homes. Lots to be thankful for!
Many areas of New England suffered worse than we did. Hopefully all will be restored soon. Let the healing begin!
