Oh by the way – power is out all over Connecticut thanks to Hurricane Ernesto and I have been without power for over 24 hours now and the power company anticipates about 24 more hours till power is restored. I begged and pleased – I even told them I am a good customer – always paying my bills on time. It didn’t help much. I have called twice for estimated repair times and the second time the estimate became eight hours later than the first!
I am not sure if I should call again or perhaps I will have to wait even more. I have loaded the refrigerator and freezer with bags of ice but I am not sure how long the food will last. I am crossing my fingers and hope they are ahead of schedule. I haven’t seen so many downed trees around my house in years, if ever.
