Radio Silence … Well, Not Really


Hi guys! So, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Just wanted to check in really quickly. Hurricane Sandy has really done a number on the northeast. We are still without power at home … day 7 (or not quite 6 if you are counting a 24 hour cycle). But, thanks to the kindness of friends with a generator ;), I have camaraderie, internet, cable and, most importantly, took my first shower since Monday morning yesterday!!! It was lovely. I have always appreciated a hot shower, but there’s nothing like it when you haven’t had one in days!

Anywho, I’m about to hit the road and search for gas and a line that won’t require that I sit in it for 3+ hours. Yeah, they are on a ration in NJ right now. Gas lines have been RIDIC, police have to patrol them to control people who are losing their minds and yesterday at noon, they implemented an odd/even day restriction … meaning, you can only get gas on an even day if your plates end in an even number and an odd day if your plates end in an odd one. Vanity plates are odd … yeah, we looked it up! LOL!!

Okay, just wanted to let everyone know that we are doing fine and are in good spirits! Seriously, I’m feeling thankful and blessed that power is the only thing that we lost! My family and friends are well and no one suffered any major losses … which is FAR more than a lot of people can say. Not having power is an inconvenience, but not even a big one. I’ve been there three times before in the last year and a half and knew that it would happen, though this is the longest period without. So, send your prayers to all those who have lost homes or worse, loved ones.

Alright ladies, just wanted to let you all know that we’re okay. My one concern is that JCP&L is saying that most power will be restored by Wednesday, just in time for the nor’easter that is heading our way *smh*. So, I don’t know when we’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming, but hopefully it’ll be sometime in the near future.

Until then, stay safe and blessed!!
