Well we got through hurricane Sandy pretty much intact. There are a few shreds to the ego, but nothing that can't be mended.
We lost power at 6:30 PM-ish.. my husband wanted to go to the store for dinner and by the time we got back it was out. It was relatively warm, we have no power lines to our house (the entire development has underground wires) and no trees to knock us over. I knew it wasn't going to be 'fun' but I didn't need to stress over losing power.. we ended up finding a place to eat, ate, and called it a night.
sadly I didn't sleep a wink. The Crew was ALL over me.. quite often I felt slightly claustrophobic so I tried to move to be able to breathe . to which The Crew said, "OHAI, your awake.. PURR PURR PURR.. " It was sweet if not a little bizarre.. they did not seem stressed at all by the storm as I have seen all of this behavior from them before, but not from all of them all at once.
The morning we still had no power.. and with no power comes no water (oh what fun) and since I don't have a cell phone I had no access to the outside world until I left the house. There was quite a bit of evidence that there was quite a bit of damage out there, but the crews obviously had been hard at work, and most of the major stuff was well on its way to being removed.
We were lucky.. just about all of our problems were self made and total #firstworldproblems
