Hurricane Day

I got a Hurricane Day off work. This is a familiar thing to people who live on a coast but I live in Ohio. Today I ventured out to get some gas as my car was in need. I sat in a line at Sam's for an hour and half and left without gas. I was one car away when I arrived but then the pumps lost power or their computer link or something. It was scary driving through some major intersections without the lights but I made it there and back without incident.

This morning there were still over 500,000 down from 650,000 without power. I was fortunate to only loose power for 4 hours. I saw lots of damage, my house just lost a few shingles but other homes on my route to get gas where not so fortunate. I was also able to get gas later on in the day. We didn't get any of the rain they had originally forecasted. This is a blessing.

I am in prayer for those without power or who lost loved ones or property. QP

Hi QueenPam,
Glad you are safe there... I didn't realize Ohio was so hard hit. I put the recipe and instructions for the flour paste resist on my blog.

Glad to hear there were no major problems for you. The hurricane brought lots of flooding here, but our house sits high, so no problem. What did you do while there was no power. I don't think I would know what to do with myself.

Sandy,
I played a DVD on my laptop and then read a book with the help of a book light. I had no idea it was as bad it became. my son's power was off for 7 days. And another friend's power is scheduled to be back by Wednesday, they lost a lot of food. But we all still feel blessed!!! QP
