I still don't have power (along with 3/4 of the town, and a bunch of surrounding ones too) but they are saying the majority of my town should have power by midnight tonight. On top of all of this I have pink eye (probably because the water is contaminated and I didn't know until after I used it). Luckily the campus is up and running (for the most part) so I was able to come here and use the power and internet.
Oh no - do you have power back yet?
I hope there wasn't any damage done to your home.
That was one thing I made sure was possible when we have power outages at the cottage. Because they deal with the urban areas first, the last time we had one out there, it was 5 days before we had power, and no generator back up. So I was brewing coffee in a percolator, or boiling water for tea in a bot, on the woodstove, or the BBQ.
After the big power outage years ago that hit the Eastern Seaboard, DH bought a small generator for the house too, just to at least keep the stove and the fridge/freezer going.
