Hurricane Sandy: We're OK


Just a quick post to let you all know that we made it through Hurricane Sandy OK. There was a fair amount of flooding in Newport but not, thankfully, at my house. We have some tree limbs down and we lost power for 24 hours - off work for 2 days!! - but now power is restored and things are returning to normal.

It's kind of amazing how helpless one feels without electricity. It was sort of fun reading by candlelight last night, but I was too nervous to write. Hurricanes are not ideal letter-writing conditions!

I'm thinking of all my pen pals and mail friends all up and down the east coast, and hoping everyone is OK.

    1. Generally, I do, too - just not in a hurricane! :-) It reminded me how lovely candlelight is, though, and how I should use more of it.
