Geeeeeez! A damn tropical storm comes along and you’d think it was the end of the freakin’ world!
Well, to my other half it was. You just can’t live like Daniel Boone with a woman in the house during a tropical storm when you lose all electricity, the telephone and Internet on top of all that.
Along with a gazillion other New Englanders we lost all services for three days and reverted back to living as cave dwellers. Fortunately, the huge casino just one mile from us provided us with our usual free coffee and donut which gave us the stamina to exist lest we kill each other by not having our morning coffee.
I’m still at a loss to figure out how in this day and age it took three days to get electricity back. I mean I personally surveyed the area and couldn’t find anything which would cause an outage. I think it was a conspiracy by some unknown terrorist organization. Wasn’t there a radical group back in the 60’s called “The Weathermen?” Bet they’re making a comeback. Damn SOB’s.
It’s either them or Yankee Candle Company. I have my suspicions.
Anyhow, we escaped it unscathed with the exception of a few downed branches, losing all the frozen food we had in our freezer, and making massive donations to Dunkin Donuts, McDonald’s, and Henny Penny.
If all goes well I expect my normal day of bloggerisms to resume at midnight tonight with yet another MisfitWisdom Flying Fickle Finger Feather Award presented to someone who is lacking in logic and possibly a brain.
Until then, it’s off to the shower.
