Well, Hurricane Irene was not as bad as originally expected, but she was bad enough. Here in North Carolina, trees are down everywhere and power outages are rampant. This update is going to be rather hurried…
I am still without power. My generator crashed early on, but is okay now. Lesson I learned: never use old diesel fuel in a diesel generator. Not good. Ever. I have no phone and my DSL comes and goes. Mostly goes. Just got my computer back up for the first time since Saturday morning. I do not have access to my email. My house is without AC and it is about 93 degrees inside as I write this. Not good for a computer, so I will limit using it to a minimum. A large tree fell across my driveway on Saturday morning, taking my power lines with it. It will probably be a week before the power folks get to me. So, my blogging will be questionable in the days to come.
All is well here for now, however. I think there are still some 300,000-500,000 folks without power, which means my driveway has been placed WAY DOWN the power company’s fix-it list.
Thank you everyone for your concern and support.
