Ditched by the Power Company
I have not been around this week because our part of Connecticut got whacked but good by Storm Alfred ( I think.) We are prowling around the lower rungs of that heirarchy of needs, trying to maintain a body temperature of 98.6 degrees, finding warm food, staying warm at night.... We have been without power since Saturday because Connecticut and Connecticut Light and Power have seen fit to do very little about the situation. It seems they sealed our fate when they did not pay the bill to the out-of-staters who helped with the last crisis. So we got what we paid for. Sad thing. Be well and happy, one and all. See you soon.
