Well, as many of you know I’m in CT and therefore right in the path of this great super storm which has not so lovingly been nicknamed Frankenstorm. I honestly don’t know what the deal is with this particular week of the year. One of our busy times too. I had parent/teacher conferences scheduled for my oldest daughter this week, Halloween, my son’s 5th birthday, my birthday, and my Pampered Chef/Gourmet Cupboard party all planned along with all of the other day to day stuff.
Instead now for at least two days school is canceled so far. We probably will miss out on trick or treating again this year. We will do our best yet again to give my son an enjoyable birthday probably in the dark again. And maybe I’ll luck out and wake up to electricity for my birthday. Although, my hope of course is that we just don’t lose power at all or if we do it’s for no more than 24 hours, but the forecast for the whole week really looks bad. If power goes out no one will be fixing the problem until the storm passes.
It’s really just looking bad all around. I am grateful at least that it does not look like we’re getting snow. I’m hoping that everyone stays safe. It would be wonderful if all of these forecasts were just completely wrong and this blew over us with nearly a sneeze. But if that’s not the case we are prepared.
We have our water, we have canned goods, we have phones charged, we cleaned off our porch, we parked our car away from trees, we have laundry all caught up, we have electronics charged, we have batteries, we have candles, we have plenty of bored games to entertain us. My husband is on vacation for the week, although he is on standby for emergencies at work.
And here’s the thing with my blog. If I’m without power I’m mostly without internet. While I can get on with my daughter’s Kindle it’s very difficult and has a tendency to freeze up with certain sites. So please excuse me while I might be lacking in my blogging this week. I have a couple of posts scheduled, but not for the whole week. I will update as soon as I can and everyone else who is on the east coast and in the path of this super storm stay safe and heed warnings of evacuations. We’re hunkering down here and riding things out.
October Freak storms take two…
You didn’t break us last year and we’re not going to let you break us again!
