Day five post Hurricane Irene turned Tropical Storm Irene. Still without power, though it came on last night – we all cheered – until this morning, when we lost it again – we all booed. No cell phone signals either. Yikes. Life by candlelight/lantern, cold showers and silence. Trees tossed in the most inconvenient places, continuing powerless traffic lights, schools and, until this morning, libraries. (I’m in the library now, making this blog possible.) A flooded basement, leaky roof, and now, apparently, mold. One son has a fever/strep throat. Another has a job that I have to drive him to – thirty five minutes in each direction. Am I complaining? Not at all…..
Not giving my creative life much thought.
