With this I will note that no one was hurt and that's what matters most!
It was like a maze just trying to get to the store for some ice the first few days. Huge trees were just pulled from the ground...like plucked flowers. We couldn't believe how many roads were blocked....what was even more amazing was when you left our neighborhood it looked like nothing even happened! I'm still convinced that what hit St. James was more "tornado like".
So its SIX days later and little by little everyone is getting their power back, getting back to normal. Us...not so much. We still do not have power, no hot water...which I'm sure if you think about your day--wake up WITH an alarm, make a cup of coffee, take a shower, eat breakfast with cold milk/juice...yada yada you get the point. It was an adventure the first few days...now its just getting ugly. The worst part is most of our friends/family HAVE power and it almost feels like we are on an episode of LOST. (that made me chuckle ...btw...I'm losing my mind a bit 2kids with no electric=crazy mommy).
So I am typing this post at "Uncled Eddie's and Aunt Terri's" because we can come here and they don't get gray hair the first five minutes of biting, screaming or after listening to 20 versions of Whistle While you Work sung by a 2 year old. We came to take some baths, eat and then head home.
I am predicting that we will have power by Tuesday....AGH!!!! Wish me luck and I hope that I have not been forgotten in the blog world as well....let me feel the love folks...I want to have some fingers crossed around the U.S...who knows maybe it will work!
