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. 


  1. sending you warm thoughts Sandy!

  2. I figured this was why we hadn't heard from you this week. The blogasphere at your side of the country has been quiet. I hope you get some power soon.

  3. smile Sandy, so sorry to hear this news, I bet these folk who are in charge dont go without tho.

    Your love within your household will keep you all going untill those who can, will get you sorted.

  4. Oh Sandy....back to the pioneer days! Stay warm, enjoy the quiet and look forward to power up and running full speed, soon.

    Take care, G

  5. Wow, I had no idea. I googled up on this and you guys have quite a situation on your hands.

    I hope your family and everybody else up there gets light, heat, warmth, and hi speed access up and going again.

    I'm suffering major "Writing in Faith" deprivation.

  6. I have been thinking of you ever since the storm hit, hoping you were okay! You have been missed, look forward to seeing you back in the blogging world!! Take care, stay safe and warm!


  7. Yes, I have been thinking about you guys out on the east side.
    Seems every year is getting worse and worse and it pays to invest in a generator to keep heat in the house or maybe a propane fireplace as some country homes have in cases of emergency.
    My Dad had a Franklin stove which also served as a stove to cook food in cases of emergency.
    We had a very bad storm once in Montreal. Thankfully the old people had wood to burn and lots of preserves and the cold weather was a good fridge.
    They managed well.
    Keep warm and stay well Sandy. Hope they turn the power on soon.

  8. Most unfortunate, keep tight Sandy. It'll come soon. The powers that be would have to act as they're in the boat as well.


  9. Oh dear! That is awful! Hope your ordeal ends soon!
