Missing In Action

Right now I am at the library for my book club. I will be MIA till further notice. We were hit pretty hard with wind yesterday and are now on hour 26 without power. They say it could be Thursday at the earliest till we get power back. So we are living the simple life right now. We do have a generator to keep our sump pump running and are also hooking up necessary appliances for an hour or so every few hours (just so we don't lose everything!) and certainly no quilting or sewing has been going on since I guess the sewing machine is not important enough to hook up to the generator! LOL! (the coffee maker is!). We also have no computer/Internet etc. So I will see you all when we get our power back!

Oh my gosh, I hope you didn't suffer any damage. Hope you get your power back soon.

We felt the strong winds over here in Indiana, too. Our power went on and off over the weekend but didn't go totally out so I'm thankful for that. We have some limbs down but no major damage. It makes me wonder what the people that stayed behind in Texas went through. I'll be looking for you to come back on line. Glad the coffee pot is important enough to hook to the generator!!!!!!!

Sara, I know what you mean by those winds and the damage. Hope your power gets back on soon. Ours was only out a few hours. No damage here but alot of limbs to clean up. There are pics of my backyard on my blog. I am getting ready to go clean up and mow the front yard in just a minute here. I hope you come back soon. Best of luck.

Oh dear!!! I hope you get your power back soon, I know what a bummer it is to live without all the convienences we so often take for granted.

See you when you get back from living like a pioneer =)
