Still no power, still no power, still no power. Shit. All of the newer neighborhoods with their cute, little trees and underground utilites have power. I just had to have the old house with the big trees. Goddammit. My animals are spread out all over town: Shirley is at a neighbor's with a generator and three other weenie dogs having weenie dog fun. Henry (my beagle) is at my mom's--also with no power, but warmer than our house is currently. I dressed him in a doggie hooded velour jacket that is too small. He is a fatso and looks like a before picture for diet pills. Beverly the cat is still at the cold house, running around all batshitty and becoming feral. We're still at the MIL's and I'm so thankful for her and her hospitality and the fact that she's awesome and not one of those MIL's, but I really, really miss my house and tomorrow it's going to be a week since we lost power and they're saying that it might be another 10 effing days! ~sigh~ Anyway...that's my craptastic update. I am cranky.

That is crappy. Ten more effing days??? Wow. I hope that is a way overestimate and they get it on SOON!

That sucks ass.

I'm sorry. Put the dogs/cat in the car and come to PA! We have heat! And alcohol! And lots of good fun that is funny...

What a trial! Glad you found places for the pets. Hope you're back home soon!

Wow. That sucks. We lost power the other night for 2 hrs and I thought that was bad!!! Holy shit.

mb - I love your Dr Suess reference! Too funny.

Seriously though, I'm so sorry and I hope you get your electricity back soon.

Thanks guys :) They said on the news today that it would be another week until the whole city is restored--so we might get it before then. Better than 10 days anyway.

Michelle--that was hilarious! I need some good fun that is funny right now! And I haven't even had a drink all week! What am I thinking? (going to find wine now.)

I think you must be fairly close to me (geographically). I have been bitching and moaning about icy streets and here you are, no power. How much do I suck. I hope things get better sooner then later.

I linked here from aureulia's blog BTW, if you are wondering who this crazy person is.

Are you ok??? I keep checking, hoping that you are back home, safe and sound!

kate said...

I keep checking too! Surely they must have the power back on by NOW....
