All those people left without electricity and heat after that storm knocked down all the trees and powerlines in the Northeast over the weekend?
The Uncools are among them.
We're all fine. We narrowly had a tree fall on the Minivan of Manliness while trying to get out of the neighborhood on Saturday night. We had another just miss our patio shortly after that. This freaked Thing 2 a bit, but other than that, we're all good.
Our house is fine, but dark and cold and missing a handful of shingles from the garage roof. Oh, it's also filled with a slowly rotting freezer full of food we had just purchased at Costco.
On the positive side, my arteries didn't need that 8 pounds of bacon, any way.
Latest word is that we'll get power back on Wednesday.
I'll survive but the Things were a bit stir crazy without computers, TVs and the like after just 30 minutes. We're at the public library charging up their Nintendo DS's as I type while I look for a non-existent local hotel room to crash in. They'll survive, though. Luckily, it isn't sub-freezing temperatures and I still have some firewood left from the storms three years ago to burn and we have a warm Lab to lay on our feet.
Please don't try to come help us. Really. I've had one cold shower in four days and I'm afraid my funk would render you unconscious.
Hope to have more for you soon from a re-electrified Uncool Estates. Be well, all. We are.
