Power, for real this time

We have power back.

I'm a total failure at blogging daily...

Maybe pictures in a day or two?

halloween was delayed again

by our town, but our little street is going ahead with the celebrations anyway.

We have a generator on loan, now that almost all the town has power. It provides heat and limited electricity. (I still can't do the laundry.)

I tried to take a picture of it, but it wasn't very photogenic. And I didn't try all that hard.

Then I took my temperature and it was 38.3C, and I was so tired and loopy that I didn't convert it correctly the first three times I tried. (It's just under 101F) But I'm still at work because everyone else on my team is even more tired and/or more sick than I am.

Across the street has power but my little side street does not.

the power outage continues

Still no power. Still no public school. Still no day care.

Can I do it every day?

Yes, I'm jumping on the bandwagon with trying to blog every day for a month.

Right now, I'm taking refuge at my in-laws' place because ours has been without power and heat since Saturday night. (Oddly enough, the hot water still works.) The boys and I are all sick, probably as a result of sleeping in sub-50s roms for two nights without hats. DH wears hats to bed regularly, so he was all set without really thinking about it.
