Our electricity was out for a week due to Hurricane Sandy. We spent some time at my mom's and she sewed up a bunch of these fabulous sweater-sleeve wool baby pants. Tim's been mainly at our house manning the generator and keeping up the heat since we don't have fireplace inserts yet and the temperatures were dropping (last night was a frost).
It was a nice little vacation for me and when Cedar and I returned home last evening, the power trucks were repairing downed lines and the lights came miraculously, wonderfully, treasuredly back on. We can shower, do dishes, run the water, heat the house, use the fridge, and see at night without the use of candles or flashlights again. It's very good to be home again and to be able to get things in order.
