Isaac was the "little" storm that packed a terrible punch! Many in my area flooded and are still without power. We finally got power back last night and I am here to tell you that a hot shower is soooo wonderful! Say a little prayer for the folks affected. My older sister and her husband and two dogs are here napping. They have no power and the heat wore them down.
We have become survivalist-like about storms (without intending to be). We have a generator that will run one window unit air conditioner, a lamp, a couple of cell phones, and our fridge. We have 3 propane stove and two lanterns and numerous battery operated lamps, flashlights and candles. We have cold drip french roast coffee that is easily heated on the propane stove :-). Now if I could figure out a way to make beignets without power...lol.
Living with storms here reminds me of living with cancer--you can't stop them but you become skilled at managing the very best that you can. Keep fighting!
