The worst part of Irene was going out to pee and poo and having to come back inside soaking wet! We told mom we needed her to hold an umbrella over us while we did our business but she only laughed at us and told us that Irene would only blow the umbrella inside out and we'd get just as wet!
We did have a generator so our refrigerator did stay cold and we did have water and we had pizza 3 times so how tough did we have it?!
At one point, I needed eggs and veges made for my dindin so we borrowed dad's hotplate from his workshop. It took a whole lot longer for water to boil but beggers can't be choosers, right?
We were listening constantly to our battery-powered radio to stay updated and we did have our lemon meringue pie candle going.
We feel so fortunate that all we lost was tree limbs and a couple of lilac trees. So many others didn't fare as well as we did and so many others are still without power! Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected.
Please be patient with us as we make the blogging rounds. We are anxious to see what we've missed these last few days!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
