Today (Day 162) found a nice and brief storm blow through. We had frontline winds of around 60+ miles an hour. When I came home during my lunch half hour, I discovered no power in the house and part of the tree in my front yard down. Thankfully, it did not hit the house.
Here are some more shots:
I left work at 2300. My office building is across the street from a Walmart. It was pitch black. It was not the only place without power. Talk about a spooky feeling! If it were not for the fact there were other people out on the road, I would have thought I had entered the Zombie Apocalypse!
There are close to 10,0000 businesses and homes without power. It could be up to a week before it is restored. Yep. I sitting here typing this up on my itty bitty phone in the dark. I told my husband I think our next big purchase is going to be a generator. I cannot do a week without power!
The only real concern I have at the moment is the refrigerator and freezer. As it stands right now, I have no need to open either. I have bottled water and plenty of stuff to eat that does not require the stove, microwave or me to open the fridge or freezer.
I will not be able to flush the toilets because the pump runs on electricity. I will not be able to shower. These next few days are going to be rough!
The good thing is the humidity has dropped tremendously. It’s a little stuffy in the house but with the windows open, it’s actually not too bad. I have the crickets chirping right outside the Windows and my neighbor’s generator making a whole hell of a lot of racket! LOL
Here is my positive for the day:
