Posting the hard way

from my cell phone.

no power here in Eltingville, Staten Island, but we are warm, dry and well fed.

we can cook on the gas stove, but we need to light the gas because the lighter is electric powered.  We have "special guests" daughter, son-in-law, baby grandson and their three dogs.

 

we are in survival mode, eating what will spoil first, packing goodies in coolers with frozen meats and veggies on top to keep stuff cool. It seems to be working.

i'm charging my cell phone to my old laptop, battery is great, can't use it for anything else, no Internet service. 

We are the lucky ones, some in low areas are underwater. I hope they took the warning and got out.

A tree fell on my neighbors car, I guess that will be common around town for a awhile now.

We didn't have a lot of rain, just wind.

OK, live report over, I hope we get our power back soon.

Hi Kenneth, you must be a die hard Active Rainer.  To use your phone while the power is out.  Stay safe and dry!

Stay safe, my friend. I checked AR early this morning because I was concerned about my AR friends. Glad to know your family is dry, warm and safe.

I'm glad you guy are okay and it's fun to have some guests in times like this.  I hope the power comes on soon, and thank goodness for the gas stove.  It was pretty rough and scary last night, but I'm glad it's behind us now.  Now, it's recovery mode.

Kenneth I was thinking of you so I am glad you were able to give us an update.  With the family around, great time to tell family stories. 

Yes it is survival mode but it sounds like you have the basic to make it through a few days. 

Stay safe.

still no power after 98 hours,  keeping warm by using our fireplace.  We have hot water and cooking gas.  No internet, lights, or TV.  But we are thankful we are safe and warm.

When getting ready for bed during the storm, I put my flashlight on my bed, I looked up and this is what I saw.
