here on the east coast we decided to start our celebration a little bit early by throwing a halloween hurricane!
no, seriously, lovely husband jeff and i are fine, though along with most of new jersey we're without electrical power for the immediate future, and thus my internet presence may be seriously limited for the next few days. luckily we have email via our i-phones, and a gas stove for heat and food preparation.
luckier still, my mother (who lives only 30 minutes away) still has electricity, and yesterday afternoon we were able descend upon her in quest of showers, electronic-device charging, blog-post-writing, and storage for some of our frozen foods. her rates for that sort of thing are pretty reasonable, too! ;)
in the meantime, as LHJ points out, this is a bit like camping!!! i agree totally. unfortunately, i happen to really *HATE* camping. :0 which is not to say that i don't realize that we are VERY fortunate to have gotten off as lightly as this, and i hope, if you were affected by hurricane sandy, you're doing ok, too.
if you weren't affected by the storm, g'head and take an EXTRA hot shower, in my honor, ok? thanks!
