Living in the dark ages...

We are day 3 post Irene and still without electricity.
We didn't sustain any significant damage. Our people and animals are all fine, but our town still has trees and lines down everywhere.
My boys were supposed to start school today.  We were told yesterday that first day of school would be TBA.  Today they announced they will start next Tuesday! Here's hoping we don't have too many snow days or the kids will be in school until July.
Since I work from home, I can't work without power so
I am commuting into my office in Boston.
I am lucky that I have a great sister who lives near the commuter rail so I am crashing at her place(and blogging on her laptop, you know the blog that I didn't want her to read).  Oh the guilt. Anywho, I get a hot shower and a quick commute into the city.  Trying to make the best of a not so great situation. 
My husband is at home with my boys...
no electricity except for a generator to run our fridge and freezer. 
I think I have the better end of the deal but shhh, I'm not saying anything...

Happy to hear that home and family are still in tact. Hope the power gets restored soon and all can be returned to normal.

Oh my...still no power? It sounds like you have the right idea bunking at your sister's. I still haven't let anyone in my family....or my "real-life" friends read my blog. My husband keeps bringing it up though so I might cave.

Well...Thats not god. How long to they say you will be out of power??
I am glad that your house is fine though

Oh, I'm so sorry...and I do understand what you're going through! We were brushed by the edges of two hurricanes, two weeks apart, a few years ago. We were without electricity for 5 days and 4 days, respectively. It's miserable. You don't realize how much you depend on electricity until you don't have it!

You are the lucky one - you got to take a shower!! I hope your power gets turned back on quickly. Good luck!

Yikes! That sucks. How long until they restore power - have they given any indication?

so glad you family & animals are all good & safe! It was a scary one that brought a lot of prayers up to God. A big sigh of relief that it wasn't more of a disaster.
Enjoy your sister stay~
