NOT when it affects your power. Yes, the storm hit here pretty hard, so much of the state was powerless. A number of people have power, but of course, well, I'm not one of them. :sigh: It's a pain, going on now day 6. This reminds of the line that Sawyer said in Lost last season when Kate asked why he was staying on the island. He said he was doing what he knows best, just surviving, something along those lines.
The temperatures have been cold enough where I can pretty much leave most food items outside. Food, however, had been challenging since I normally eat a lot of vegetables, salads which have frozen outside. I am not one to go to restaurants and such unless I have to, so I've had to think a little more creatively.
Anyway, for now, I'm getting by for the most part. However, I kind of miss those little perks which electricity brings. Can we say light, coffee, and my own computer?
On a side note, it's been interesting to people observe. For example, I walked/ran to work (only 2 miles each way) in the freezing rain and snow for three days, and only had one person stop and ask if I was okay or needed a ride. I guess most people wondered what stupid-ass person would be out in that weather? It wasn't exactly my choice but I needed to be at work for some of the time.
Well, I've got to wrap it up. I'm at the library and on a time limit. Hopefully, my power will be back on soon. Last I heard, they said Wednesday. I have a few blog posts I've been thinking of and some pretty pictures of the storm to share. I'll catch up on blog reading when the power is restored. I hope all are well and Standingintherain, thanks for asking about me. I appreciate it. It's nice to know that people wonder where I've vanished to all of a sudden.
