Kind of gloomy here. Haven't had electricity since last night and it does not look like we will get it anytime soon either. Last night an ice storm blew through and we got an inch of ice. Trees are down all over and they say 215,000 people are without power so it may be Monday before the lights come back on. That is no surprise. The last time this happened (1998) we went 13 days without power. We are literally one of the last houses on the line so we will be the last to get power.
Patty and the baby left for her mothers who live on the coast. They did not fair much better as its lunar high tide and there was plenty of flooding there today with the torrential rains and high winds, but their power was restored quicker. After going 24 hours without a shower, a way to cook food, and intermittent heat, they headed for their mother's. I'll wait it out here with the sheep, the dogs and the small generator I got powering this computer.
I know, no pictures so it never happened, but maybe if you do a google search you will see some pictures. We got clobbered today.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
