It has now been two full days since the power went out. We have seen the power company’s trucks in our area, but we still don’t have any juice.
Well, we have juice, but not the kind that powers our house. And the juice we do have is getting thrown away. Along with everything else in the refrigerator and freezer, I’m afraid. It has just been too long–things are getting warm. I think that all of the meat that we put in my parents’ deep freeze is still alright, but I don’t know how long that will last. We threw away the ice cream that had been in the deep freeze last night–it was turning to soup.
We are at Sean’s dad’s house right now. Their electricity came back on yesterday, and they have kindly offered their amenities to us. If nothing has happened at our house by this evening, we will probably just stay the night here so it will be easier for Sean to go to work in the morning.
Ah, the work thing. You know, being an insurance agent after a natural disaster is quite an experience. Especially yesterday, when Sean’s office didn’t have power, either. Poor guy was trying to return calls and file claims from his brother’s couch while our kids ran around and made noise in the background. He is so happy to have a sane environment to work from again. Normalcy is good.
I wish I had some.
