Hurricane Irene's Aftermath

The storm has passed and left its very unwanted mark on us. While the winds were bad and the rain not as much as we expected, we're feeling the effects in the Allan household. This is Day THREE without power and no running water. Since we have a well that runs on an electric pump, our water is out as long as the power is. I'm at my wits end. While tv, internet, and phone are nice....I could live without power, its the no WATER that Is killing me! Our food has all spoiled, I've resorted to showering at my gym 20 minutes away. But, this plain sucks. Obviously with no power comes no cable and internet, so my little blog is on an impromptu vacation as well. Hopefully I'll be back and up soon! Meanwhile, I'm trying not to throw rocks at the houses that do have power on the next road over and defriend those Facebook friends complaining that their cable is out!


  1. I feel for you, I really do. Reading your blog gave me Katrina flash backs.... and there's a disturbance in the Gulf right now. *sigh*
