So! Im sure some of you were also affected....but just came off 3 days with no power in 105 degree heat and a 2.5 week old baby AND 7 year old. ACK! How horrible!!!! Thank god we have a basement for sleeping but spent the days trying to stay busy and in restaurants.
The storm itself was nuts. I actually got the family on the lower levels in a doorway. Something Ive never done before. The winds exceeded 75 miles per hour. Most stoplights and hospitals were out of power. And I was thinking....sheesh....the storm hit 3 days after my technical due date.....what about all the poor women who went into labor that day/night!!!!
How stressful. Now we have power back and Im relishing in the A/C and catching up on emails etc.
The plus side is I learned a new word: derecho.
Anyway. Im back.
