no mod cons

Sorry for the delayed update... We made it through the storm just fine, though as the title suggests we are lacking certain conveniences such as Internet access and cable TV (and power from an electrical grid, but the generator has held up so far).

I am in a Starbucks right now, availing myself of a free Internet connection, to get this up. I hope to be able to return to meatier posts, complete with photos, sometime soon. In the meantime, I will enjoy the time with my kids, who have had no choice but to reconnect with us a bit.


  1. hope the power is back up soon! we lost ours for about 8 hours. far long enough for the shine to wear off for the kids. they were so very happy that it was back on before bedtime, however we did finish watching the movie on my laptop with the lights out :) I did plug the baby back in so that we could make it all the way thru.

  2. We only lost power for about an hour on Sunday. Internet, cable, and phone were restored this morning. The kids have been forced to associate with us. Board and card games came out and Brian even asked if I had any books he could read. So yay for that for a couple of days.

  3. Usually we get hit harder with storms like this. We lost power for a few hours, but towns around us did lose it for a few days. Hope that you get restored soon!
