On Monday, the hurricane had started off slowly, and we lost power and then we got it back long enough for me to finally watch the “Julie & Julia” movie. Don and Landon had gone to sleep, and I couldn’t work because the Internet was out.
This was my breakfast the morning after Sandy: I made grilled cheese sandwiches on the gas stove and heated up coffee from the day before.
In the afternoon I found a way to get to a fast food restaurant in Bedford — and we stayed for six hours. They didn’t have Internet service either, but I was able to text and tweet and write emails on my phone. And L played for six hours in the playground. Except for the half an hour I did some school work with him.
Don was sitting in the dark at home, so I wasn’t in a rush to get home.
The next day we heard that Don’s sister in Chappaqua had power, and L and I found a way to get to her. Her main street was cut off from both sides, but a little road that dumps out right where she lives was open. It was a little hairy to get through without scratching up the car.
This morning still no power and the house was down to 63 degrees. And I really needed to get some work done. Don was able to finally get to work, and L and I drove to the nearest deli that I knew had power to charge my phone, computer, and L’s DVD player.
Wish me luck that the power will be back on when we get home. This is getting old :)
How were you affected my Hurricane Sandy?
