Thought I'd post a quick update on how we're faring after Hurricane Sandy. We have lots of
downed trees and some sections of fence are also down. Luckily, we had enough temporary
fencing to put up so there will be no escapees. The horses are all doing fine as are the two
dogs. We still have no power but are working off the generator. No tv, phone or internet
either. This pioneer adventure is getting old and I understand we are not a priority when so
many others are worse off but I still am hoping for power sooner than later.
The worst part of the whole adventure so far has been the fact that we were literally trapped
in the house. Giant hemlocks came down blocking the road on either side of our driveway.
We couldn't make a right or left onto the road. When the trees fell they took the power lines
and transformer down with them. Wednesday the crew cleaned up the trees which released
the power lines, they sprang up to about four feet off the ground. Still blocking an exit out
of the driveway. There was no way a car was fitting under them. We decided to take a
section of fence out and our neighbor let us drive across his front lawn to his driveway and
road. My husband had to get to work so we were very grateful our neighbor is a nice guy.
This morning we lucked out and the line crew has the lines up so we're not trapped anymore.
That's all the news for now. I have lots of pictures but no way to put them on the post. I'm
working from my iPad and there is no way to access the pictures from my computer to here
without internet (as far as I know anyway). Hope everyone is doing well and hanging in
Until next time
