Or really, a medium decaf and 2 Jones sodas.  I felt compelled to buy something in order to use the coffee shop’s free wi-fi.

We lost power yesterday at about 1:00 p.m.  A huge wind storm came flying through our city, courtesy of Ike, I think.  Anyhow, there are trees down everywhere and it doesn’t look like we will have our power back for about a week.  There wasn’t school today and it’s been called off for tomorrow.  Everyone we know is safe and, besides some downed trees, unharmed.  The weather is mild – cool temps, no rain – so there is little to complain about.  House on Hill Road has a gas stove and a gas water heater so we are really holding up just fine.  I feel really blessed and thankful that we are ok.

I’ll be away from the computer until the power is on and the phone is working so if you are waiting to hear from me, sorry!  I will get back to everyone just as soon as I can.

Until then, friends, take care.
