I haven't talked to Linn, but we got smacked by a mini-hurricane last night. She doesn't have power and I don't. Judging by the big friggin' trees (and I mean HUGE ones!) hanging off of power-line spaghetti, it might be a few days for me. Luckily, it's pretty warm. Not at all like last year's ice storm. Except for the no power thing.

Cancer is hard enough to deal with. Surgery is a monumental challenge all by itself. And then there's this winter, which has presented so many challenges that everyone is putting in personal bests in snow shoveling, stormy driving, mud navigation, and fire building. Having all three simultaneously is mind boggling.

One day at a time, Linn and Tom.

I don't have a wood stove, but it's 50° and I don't feel too cold. I went down to the basement, which is warmer, and a mosquito nailed me. Anyway, word in the 'hood is that power should be restored by Monday.

Thanks for the update and I do hope your own power is restored soon. Hot buttered rum can carry you only so long.

We had mostly gale force winds up here in the midcoast of Maine, played havoc with the trees, and thousands lost power. But it wasn't compounded with snow to speak of.

Oh, duh, Jeri, I forgot!**bg** My Rog says you could plug an AC converter in your car and charge things that way. He says you could even run a power cord from it into the house to do a few things. Only catch is, you'd probably have to go to a truck stop to find one. He also just told me Harbor Freight, here, has neat little gas powered generators for about $150. I never knew they could be that inexpensive.

Hi!

Power just came back. After watching three crews with new poles, I thought it might; better than the Wed. predictions,

Got out of Mass. Misery on Friday after doing nothing but hang around waiting for paperwork for six hours. Road conditions slowed the travel down only a bit.

However, the C is all gone, and once I can see my dr. we"ll deal with the other problems, real or imagined. Don't forget, with very few exceptions, they're all still practising!

Besides no electricity, we had no phone as ours is through Comcast -- I think there's 4 hours worth of power on the modem. My antique laptop doesn't have a battery and I couldn't get wi-fi to work last time I tried (during Tom's surgery in October).

My cell, which I use only for travel (like while in Boston) or emergencies, won't work at home or in the vicinity, so I spent a lot of time in parking lots at MacFred's or Market Basket. Got smart Friday night and, while Tom was ordering supper at Pizza Spinners, went next door to Radio Shack and bought a car charger for the cell.

My car wasn't at home on Sunday because I was at WORK!

By the way, Fox Run Mall in Newington, NH (for all practical purposes, Portsmouth) was closed Friday because of no power. I got to Sears Optical where I work at 9 to discover that. Could use the ladies' room (thank goodness!) but not the POS system or the register, or the phones. From what I heard, the power was back on at 3 that afternoon. When I left it looked as if Sears was planning on selling generators no matter what.

I felt like doggie doo this morning -- I think last week finally caught up with me. (I'll spare you the details.) But I had to get dressed and drive to Lee Circle to phone in sick. And then my phone wouldn't work -- evidently something didn't register when Tom topped it off last week (every 90 days) after I got the email alert. Called in on the phone at Radio Shack and then went back out into the parking lot to top off AGAIN with Virgin Mobile. Sigh. (Ain't technology grand?)

Just to set the record straight on our weather -- it poured Wednesday and Thursday, but it was the wind Thursday evening that caused all the power outages. Ours went out 10:30 Thursday night after I had posted here. I got home early evening on Wednesday and didn't bother to light the woodstove because it really wasn't cold. Didn't bother to light it, actually, until just before I went to pick Tom up on Friday afternoon. But then Saturday morning we woke up to snow -- only and inch or two of heavy wet stuff. More annoying than anything. With water and mud underneath it, of course. Had no problem driving out of the driveway (200' uphill to the road) in my Subaru, but left some pretty serious ruts half way up, so currently not using the driveway -- it's Mud Season a bit early this year. (In New England this is a whole separate season -- one fine April sunshiney day when my car was stuck part way to the road and I was waiting for a tow truck, I watched my curious cat sink into the mud when he tried to approach the car...)

You guys in DC and New Jersey and Virginia, etcet have gotten all of our snow this year -- we've had very little. We did have some pretty cold weather a few stretches, but for the past week or so it's been in the 40s. We've had some flooding, though, because of rain and some roads are still closed due to both flooding and downed trees and wires.

I'm still feeling headache-ish, etc. but hope to feel better by morning. Having power back DOES help. It's late -- gotta go to bed.

Linn

Once upon a time I saw some snow when I visited a friend who had moved to Cooma, close to the Snowy Mountains. It was good to visit for a weekend - I threw a snowball, saw a snowman & slid in the snow, but I wouldn't want to live there! And the Australian snow season is a lot less then the east coast USA snow season. Our Winter Olympians have to live in Europe or Northern America to get enough snow to train.

This weather-related power outage, while fairly large, was a walk in the park compared to December 2008's ice storm which brought New Hampshire to a standstill. We got our power back then after "only" 6 days -- some people waited two weeks.

I was also living in Cape Porpoise during the January 1978 storms -- we were an island for a few hours when Back Cove and Porpoise Cove met. The Lord's Point Inn washed out to sea and Wells Beach could well have burned if it hadn't been for the valiant efforts of the Fire Dept. -- Mile Road going over the marsh was under water. The exceptionally high tides went straight through beach houses, picked up ice in the marshes behind and slammed that ice through the backs of the beach houses. Lots of carpenters at work for quite awhile that Spring.

A huge chunk of granite landed in the GWH Bush living room at Walker's Point.

In April of 1982, Tom and I were snowed in for 3 days before the town got a huge front end loader through -- had to; the town clerk was our up-the-hill neighbor so the town of Nottingham was CLOSED.

Three years ago, the year I broke my arm, we had to have the driveway plowed every three days because of continual snow storms.

I'm not complaining about this winter's weather. Don't mind the occasional "open" winter, though a snow cover is good insulation for gardens.

I hope this means that things are improving now?

Best to all in the frozen North,

Well, Tom sees his primary care doc on Friday and his defib battery won't be replaced until next Wednesday...but I brought my car down to the house last night. Kinda hairy (hairy mud?!?) halfway down, but it's a bit colder today so shouldn't have any problems driving out. Tom's follow-up with Dr. Z is in about 3 weeks.

Should prolly wrap up this thread (or, as a non-Mudcat friend refers to it as, my blog), but I HAVE to share the card (huge foot square Hoops&Yoyo from Hallmark) we got from my sister the other day. I laugh just thinking about it -- wish you could HEAR it.

On the outside it says, "Ever feel like you're in the middle of a big ol' stress sandwich? We've been there, friend, and we know just how to solve allll your problems..."

Inside, "Flush 'em! Twice if you have to! I'm here for you. I'll even bring a plunger," and the sound chip has first a HUGE toilet flushing sound, then "Bye bye worries, there they go...they look so cute when they're just swirling down there...wave to 'em...bye!"
