We are OK!

We have no new pictures or anything yet, but we just wanted to post to say we're all OK. The hurricane was noisy and wet and frightening, but we got through it and are doing OK so far. We haven't had electricity since about 3 am last Saturday morning, but our water supply is good. We go to bed earlier than normal -- don't want to waste those D cell batteries that are so hard to find right now!

Grandbeans are beyond bored! They have a few homework assignments from Thursday last week, but of course have made little progress. They are finding out what life without TV and video games is like! They're doing lots of reading, thank heaven.

We're basically just sitting around waiting for electricity to be restored, which we learned today won't happen until Monday or later next week ... drat! But everyone's safe and well fed, and those are most important!

PS -- The only reason this is being posted is because of the grandbeans' generous neighbor who has run a line from his generator to their house. Yay for good neighbors!

Oh we are glad you are all ok! No 'lectricity is a bummer, but there are lots of worse things!
We have good neighbors too! When dad was very sick with cancer they took turns bringing food over so mom didn't have to worry about cooking.
