Default I rode out Ike...

And all I got was this lousy T-Shirt, no power, and rotten food.

Boss said to come into work, so I have coffee and internet. Left Bryan with the job of hunting down a gas station with both electricity and gas since his office is still a staging area for hurricane relief forces.


We lost power sometime about 2 AM Saturday, hurricane made landfall around midnight. The eye went over us around 4-5 AM. Bryan and I got no sleep that night at all. We had drive out to evac his grandmother Friday afternoon, which used up a 1/4 tank of gas, and take her back home, Saturday, using another 1/4 tank of gas. Leaving us with very little to make it through the lines of similarly hard up people.

We live in a really great neighborhood and we banded together with our neighbors and had potluck suppers the last five nights. Cooked everything we could get our hands on. We're out of food now, and no use buying more till the power comes on. Guess we track down restaraunts next.

And I think after the sound of the wind Saturday morning, I think I know what the wailing of the damned would sound like, now.

Yeah, Sini's a bum. Though with his aparment leaking and no power, that's a lot to put up with. At least our gigantic house had no damage.

I'm glad you guys made it through with no damage--that's awesome.

I don't envy you trying to live without power for so long, though. We lost power for two freezing days in a wind storm, and it was awful. I can't imagine doing it for longer than that, unless you have somewhere better to go.

Good luck!

have I mentioned recently that not only do I like winter, but, even moreso, like the lack of titanic hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other horrible natural disasters that are seemingly so common throughout the rest of the world?

/me is happy to be where he is.
