Andrea it wasnt at all boring! Not like some of these mma fans on here that just go on and on about nothing
I'm so happy to hear your ok. I've never experienced what you have but went through a fire and being evacuated and had to come home to a complete mess so I get it a little bit. Yeah, makes you grateful for all the little ( which are actually big) things in life.
Glad you lived to tell the tale.Get cleaned up and get back here.Youve only got 2 post

Andrea, so glad to hear y'all have power again and that y'all made it through this trying time. Sounds like you've got some good people up there. God bless you all!

Ditto! As beautiful a blessing as those generators were, when we finally got power and they were off, that beautiful peaceful silence was a blessing also.

BTW, you had water?

I thought after Rita, in '05, I was going to be totally prepared for the next one, NOT. This year, starting in June, I'm using everything in the freezer and going week to week keeping stuff in the fridge. If I stay, I'm filling every recepticle (tubs, pots, jugs, etc...) with water as well as stocking up on bottled water and batteries. Of course, I realize my doing this will more than likely insure no hurricanes will come this way.

We didn't have any water for several days, 5 or 6 I can't remember. Then when it did come back on we were on a boil water order but didn't have a way to boil water. So we had to find other means. I showered at work. We had filled the tubs full of water but that only got us so far. Oh well. Hurricanes suck but at least it wasn't an ice storm. No way could I deal with the cold for so long with just my fireplace.
