=no power for at least four days from what I've heard.

storm was on Thursday, it's Saturday and there are no CL&P/NE Utilities trucks in sight :(


bees are okay

Siberian elm that's completely hollow at the base @ work is still standing

trees down @ home but none on our house

so refrigeration, flushing and an occasional shower is not such a big inconvenience (thank goodness a local cafe with power and wifi, and for my Y membership! and they're open late on weekends :)

ETA from the Farmers Almanac : Here’s the forecast for the 2011 hurricane season (between June 1 and November 30): Well above-average activity is predicted for the Atlantic Basin versus the historical average (based on 1950–2000 records).

The probability of landfall by a major hurricane is also above average. Factors influencing the hurricane predictions include warm and favorable tropical Atlantic conditions.

ETA 2: A "possible tornado" showed up on the Weather Center radar over the southern end of town of New Milford, Bill Jacquemin, chief meteorologist at the Connecticut Weather Center in Danbury, said Thursday.

"It's a very explosive situation," he said. "There were wind gusts of over 40 miles per hour at the Weather Center. For not even being the worst part of the storm, that's pretty impressive."

it stinks but it gives me an appreciation for folks who have to without for weeks and months in either war or weather savaged areas.

I'm a freaking basket case without running water, I would crumble in the face of long term outages

"I would crumble in the face of long term outages"

Nah. You'd adjust and manage. You might give in to a fit of bitching and moaning initially, out of sheer frustration and stress, but then you'd just manage. You're not a fool.

Concerning "possible tornadoes," I'll tell you we've heard more severe weather alerts, tornado watches and tornado **warnings,** and break-in local programming concerning tornadoes and "TVS's"---have you been introduced to that one, yet?---this spring than I can recall ever hearing before.

Oh man that sucks :( I wonder why it's taking so much longer than usual to get things back up and running...must be something that's not an easy fix. I've been pretty surprised by how explosive the weather has been around here lately. I wonder what the summer has in store.....

Take care of yourself.
