It reminded M and I of a dementor (oh how I miss Harry Potter). It wasn't long before the police arrived and a fire truck. They inspected the area, located two car owners and had their cars removed from the area and then they tied yellow tape around our house. We woke up to find ourselves still powerless and back at the window to see what our dementor really was. My neighbors roof.
We spent three days without power, D just a good sport. And then Thursday evening I turn on the television and see the news, stunned by the devastation around us. Feeling a bit selfish for complaining about no power when there are some with no homes. I am so happy we have power back but my heart and prayers go out to those who are still without and those who have fared worse. May God give you the strength to get through this tragedy.
Gas has also become a problem, like nothing I have ever imagined. The long lines, people standing with gas cans, it seems right out of a book or movie. Yesterday I stood behind a few dozen cars in line. I could see the gas station, I did not know if they had gas or how long the lines were.. I saw a line and parked my car along the car and watched another dozen cars gathered behind me.
The trains haven't resumed service yet, so M commutes by changing three buses.. his once hour commute can now run up to two hours and grocery stores are a swarming with people. With no carts you just buy what you can carry.. I am now just waiting for normalcy to return, aching for routine to resume.
Hoping you all are well, take care and stay safe.
