This post brought to you by...electricity :)

That's right folks!  We not only survived the hurricane without having to evacuate, but we also survived over 72 hours without power with a video game dependent 14-year old, a t.v. addicted 5-year old, and minimum food spoilage.  Of course our checking account took a substantial hit, as the banks were all closed because of the power outage but the clearing houses were all open, so that money I had sitting in the savings account just sat there instead of getting into the checking account where it really needed to be.  Oh well.  Worse things have (and did) happen as a result of the storm so I'm feeling very blessed. 

I was a good little blogger, and made sure to charge the camera battery so I've got some pretty surreal photos to share once I get home to upload them.  Unfortunately, I'm right smack dab in the middle of finals again and I've been without power or computer access so I'll be busy for a good week, but if I get some spare time I promise a proper blog post complete with photos and a full debriefing of the last three days.  Now, back to work :)


  1. Glad things are getting back to normal. Good luck with finals!

  2. I'm glad that you posted these pictures. We had plenty of news here in England along the lines of 'The hurricane's coming' and 'everyone's going' and we were all worried for you all over here. Your photographs really show the human side of things. It must have been really scary. Glad you're safe.

  3. Thanks Angela!
    I figured that my family in California would be interested to see the aftermath, and some of the stuff I saw was just so surreal that I had to take photos or no one would believe me, lol. One more photo post to go.
