13 Days Without Power

So here is a quick rundown of our nearly 2 weeks without power as of Wednesday night.

Loads of laundry done at home = 0

Loads of laundry done at Gemini’s house = 2

Shows of mine I got to watch = 2

Shows of mine I didn’t get to watch = undetermined

Days spent at the house reading or sleeping = 7

Days spent at either my parent’s house or Gemini’s house = 6

Cars impaled by tree branch = 1

Times we called Unitil (80% of that time getting a busy signal) = 23

Times we threatened to break the neighbor’s generator across the street = 6

Days it took Unitil to fix the power in my neighborhood = 11 (I think)

Times I forced others to take pitty on me = 8,952

Still no cable but I’m just thankful to go back to somewhat normal in the house :dance:
