Light Me Up

Power outages are rampant across the state of New Hampshire. We were not spared. The power went out at 2:30am, and was still out when I left the house at 6:30am this morning. That's 3 days without power.

We are very fortunate, however, to have a generator. The hubs picked up one of the last ones available Friday morning to the tune of $700! YIKES!!! It was well worth it though. Without it we wouldn't have heat or hot water, which many people have been without. It was 17 degrees when we woke on Saturday morning, so going without heat would have been harsh. With a generator we have limited power also; we keep only one light on at a time and don't run things like hairdryers or washing machines.

This is a first for me. As we were driving home from dinner at the in laws' last night (they have power), we noticed quite a bit of power had been restored. Many house were lit up and taunting me giving me hope with their Christmas lights. About 5 blocks from our house the lights stopped. Power, it seemed, was not back up for everyone. Bummer. I am hopeful for today, but am not counting on it.
