Hello, everyone... I'm connected again! The power went out here at about 4:30 AM yesterday (Monday), and didn't come back until 11:30 AM today. Not as bad as it could've been, I suppose: we didn't lose anything in the fridges or freezers to spoilage, and we were able to clean ourselves and brush our teeth, after a fashion. Couldn't flush any toilets, though, so you can bet that the first thing I did when I had running water again was scrub the main bathroom. :-p

Irene was a tropical storm by the time it reached us, but don't let that fool you--she still packed one helluva wallop. High winds brought down trees, which in turn knocked out power. She came in faster than we expected, too, so we were kind of unprepared; we'd planned on filling the bathtub (for those oh-so-important flushings) yesterday morning, but... the best-laid plans and all that. Man plans, and God laughs, so the saying goes.

All in all, though, everything turned out OK. The roof is intact, the garden survived (yay, tomatoes!), we had bottled water, and there was propane for the grill, so really, a lack of power wasn't too bad. Mind you, I had to use a saucepan and the side burner on the barbecue in order to make a cup of tea this morning... that was interesting...
