Down with Power OUTage

If you live in Connecticut....this week you are...

out of power

out of heat

out of hot water

shit out of luck

A winter storm hit our area hard LAST Saturday...
resulting in some bad ass damage...

By bad ass...
I mean trees down,
power lines down,
gas stations down,
Dunkin Donuts down
(oh no)


Bringing spirits down....
Especially for the trick-or-treaters. Boo hooo


Apparently winter storm Alfred... didn’t want to be out done by girly Hurricane Irene...
so he flexed his muscle.
We felt his one-two hit when PaulA and I were flying back from a Big Chill Thrill vacation in Florida ...
we could only get as far as Baltimore.
So there we stayed...
two nights in Baltimore.

So what do you do when you’re stuck in Baltimore?
Duh...
watch the Ravens and get crabs. (You know what I mean.)
It was perfect...it fit our crabby moods.

48 hours later...we were driving home from the airport...
risking life and limb under tree limbs...arriving to a 43 degree house.
(baby, it’s cold inside.)

So what do you do when the going gets tough?
Duh...
you guessed it...you get going.

PaulA on a business trip...
and me?
over the river and through the woods to Mommy and Daddy’s house in Vermont I go.

Where else can you pull in to a nice dinner and vino waiting...
your bed turned down....
and coffee ready for you when you wake up in the morning?

Anywhooooo......

It’s Day Five of NO power back in CT...
but alas,
the accommodations at this here joint are working for me.

I’ve got my feet up...
laptop up...
and spirits up.

Things are definitely looking up!

The power may be OUT....
but that never stops katOUT
