As I sit at the library Tuesday afternoon, we are still without electricity at home after Hurricane Irene hit Saturday night. We had no damage to our house or yard, and there were fewer trees and large branches down in the neighborhood than I expected. We got over 5 inches of rain which made falling trees likely once the high winds started.
We’re managing just fine without a generator. My refrigerator has been emptied and had a thorough cleaning! We’re also enjoying beautiful weather and great family time. Our power company had over 1 million customers lose power. They expect to have everyone’s power restored by 11:30 pm Friday. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. It is a little harder to be patient after the other side of our street got their power back Monday night.
Update: Our power came back on about 2:00 this morning. Yay!
