I really enjoyed this blog post here on line and on Active Rain. So, I thought it was fitting that I use this handy re-blog feature here, so others can also have a chance to learn from this great resourse!
My house is without power. My town is a bit luckier than many around us who are at 100% without power. According to Connecticut Light & Power right now 53% of us in New Milford are without power, down from yesterday's 65%. I am also lucky that my daughter has power at her house, so we piled in the car, took the dog with us, and stayed warm and informed for the night.
The other inconvenience was that our cell phones weren't working yesterday, all day! I could see I had messages, I could read emails and texts, but I could not call out, respond to anything or get on the web. I was blind! Today it seems to be working better though.
Many of us do not have alternative heat sources in our homes. It is clear that living in the modern age has not taken into account that Mother Nature could care less if we don't have alternative heat sources, if we don't have electricity, if it is October and not mid winter. She will do as she pleases and we are at her mercy.
Over the next day or so I will be throwing most of my food away, (which really hurts) clearing the mess that is in my back yard, and being grateful that none of the branches and limbs hit the house or our own wires into the house. Driving down to my daughters yesterday was an event, dodging tree limbs, downed wires, etc. Just from what I saw this should take a very long time to clean up and get everyone back up and running.
I also drove past corn fields that had not yet been harvested. This is a total disaster for the local farmers. What a mess indeed!
It would seem that the modern world has sent me back to the ice age. I have to figure out a way to get an alternative heat source in my house, and oh boy is it going to be a long, long winter (again). What I used to think was beautiful... well... today... not so much!
