With losing power twice ( within 2 weeks) and being sick. I haven’t gotten much done.
I was on a roll with the FRIENDS themed blanket. I haven’t started a new panel in weeks.
The Nor’easter caused us to lose power for 4 days. Yes I said FOUR days in the middle of winter. National Grid was not on their game. so many trees snapped in half or just fell over. Some on power lines some on houses and cars. A tree snapped on our street about a half a mile up and landed on a power line ( or rested against it, I didnt actually see it) which neighbors are saying is why we lost power when all the other houses in town had electricity back and we didnt.
So day 4 which was a monday, we finally got power back on. I think my landlady was a big part of that…lol You do not want to be on the other end of the phone when she is mad..lol
I heard national grid did not get anyone to cut down the whole tree to avoid future power outages. Now fast forward to last Tuesday where we got a nasty snow storm. Just about every place was closed except for Cumberland farms ( gas station/ small store to those who never heard of it) and Stop and Shop ( they were half open. All the meat and dairy were getting boxed back up because they lost power to their freezers.) We lose power again….. I dont know if it was because of the same tree but i heard it was hanging on the power line . And again my landlady called national grid and ‘voiced her opinion’. One time estimate was 7-9 pm on Tuesday. Nope. We got it back at 1 pm on Wednesday.
I hope this doesn’t happen again. Its happened a few times over the last couple of years but that was in the summer. Losing power in the winter sucks. I am done being cold.
Oh yeah and I had a cold this entire time. I am getting better with cold meds and heat 🙂 I still have a little cough but I always have a cough that lingers a few weeks after .
AND today we are getting more snow. Please let the power stay on 🙂
