We drove to Belmont this morning, where I could feel 'at home' asking for showers and baths for eight people... three days without power and we're doing fine. We could probably go easily for another week. But who wants to? Right now, school is cancelled until Wednesday, and we're hopeful that one of the 129 Verizon trucks we passed on the way to mom and dad's house is on their way to our neighborhood. It was an amazing sight to inspire hope and stamina. The trucks were carrying telephone poles, equipment and were of all shapes and sizes. They just streamed on by in one steady line for 35 minutes. A beautiful sight. We're headed back to the cold and dark, but may leave a few kids in Belmont tonight. I've missed blogging! I'll have some good pictures when we finally get our power back... pray for those who don't have a nice wood stove to huddle around!
over and out.
