Winter decided to make an early appearance over the weekend as a fierce Noreaster whipped through Massachusetts taking down trees, branches, power lines, cable wires and utility poles leaving hundreds of thousands without power or heat. My son and I escaped to my sister’s house in the eastern part of the state which didn’t get hit nearly as hard. My wonderful husband stayed home to tend to the disaster that was our yard. He also helped out at my mom’s house. Fortunately we have a wood stove so my husband was toasty warm at night.
Our power came back Monday night. The worst of it for us was the damage in the yard, a refrigerator and freezer full of food that had to be thrown away, and flooding in our basement. We are very lucky considering how much damage and destruction there is in our area.
Of little importance is the fact that we do not have cable or Internet. My iPhone service has been questionable as well. As soon as things improve I will be back with posts.
I hope everyone is safe and warm. See you soon.
