No TV and no internet make Jill something something

Go crazy? Damn right. There is power two blocks east and three blocks west. No power here yet. Threw away about fifty bucks in meat and leftover Chinese food this morning. Friday we'll clean out the freezer. If it weren't't for the generator giving us light, heat, and a bit of hot water, despair would be setting in. And we're lucky. We aren't trying to keep two kids entertained, we have some light, battery-operated radio, and can charge up the phones. But it's getting old already.

i don't know how big your freezer is, but if you can get to someplace that has ice, go get some. a few strategically placed 5 pound bags under and over like a sandwich can save frozen meat and really expensive stuff. i know this from years of losing power in the summer here in minnesota. i got tired of throwing away a gazillion dollars of kosher meat every time we had a thunderstorm.

Glad to hear you are still alive anyway... what a crazy storm, and so early in the year.

It's OK, Jillian. I got your back. I've been posting here every day since the blizzard until you get back on your feet.
