Living in Colonial Times

Well, that's what I feel like anyway!  We didn't have too much physical damage from Hurricane Irene other than a few downed branches and trees, but the storms knocked out our power late Saturday night.  As of right now, Wednesday afternoon, we are still without electricity.  We've been playing a lot of card games during the day and I've been catching up on some reading by flashlight after the kids go to bed.  (The bonus is that they go to bed a lot easier since everything is dark by 7:45).  Crafting has been limited with no hot glue gun, iron, sewing machine, etc. 

Most of our area schools were able to finally open today and we're hoping power is restored by this weekend.  Until then, I have very limited internet access (I'm on the computer at the public library right now) so there won't be any new posts for a few more days.

  1. Oh wow! Is there anything you need or anything I can do to help you? I didn't realize people here in Maryland were still without power!

  3. Glad you did not get hit too hard! I would miss using my washing machine most, hope you were not as much behind as me with your wash ;-), when the power went down. I hope everything will be back to normal soon. Take care - maks :-)
