Shock and Awe

That's how we felt at 8:30pm last night.  After a mere 28 hours ... our power was restored.

We are so grateful to the countless utility crews who are working round the clock to restore power to our state but...given the state of our shoreline not to mention the devastation in NY and NJ, we just assumed we'd be low on the priority list.

We accepted it early and just planned to roll with it.

In fact we were so unprepared to get our power back that a neighbor had to knock on our door to let us know the power was back on; our generator was still running. :-)

And now that our lives have returned to normal, we pray for those whose lives have been turned inside out and upside down by Hurricane Sandy.
