Phew! It was scary and devastating. We lost all power, heat, phones, internet ... everything for 4 days. Hubby is still in NYC. He is so exhausted. Working 16 hour days. I hope he doesn't get so run down that he gets sick. I am so worried about him.
With the short days upon us, I dreaded seeing the clock tick away. 5:30 meant lighting candles and getting the flash lights ready. It meant soup and crackers for dinner. It meant going out to the car to charge my cellphone (even though I could use it minimally for text messages only) and to listen to local news so I would know what was going on around me. I needed to take sleeping pills because there was no way sleep was coming naturally. I never knew how dark DARK could get. I mean ... pitch black! I hate being alone. I did get a message from one of my brothers so I knew he was OK. And somehow my daughter (in Israel) was able to connect with me but only for a few minutes. We lost connection.
I am glad to have some normalcy back in my life. There are many businesses that are still not up and running. The transit systems is in a shambles. That's also one of the reasons hubby is still in NYC. Most of the transit is not able to roll yet.
SO, it's good to be back. I hope everyone is well.
