Now mostly on Facebook (and rarely caught up even there)
Only the power and heat of our love

Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
For those who didn't see this on Facebook, which was the only place I could sort of get to last night: plumtreeblossom and I are stuck in Quincy. Power went out around 9 last night. Heat and hot water stayed on a while but went out (maybe the pilot light blew out?) sometime overnight. I've been shovelling for when the travel ban is lifted (or when I decide we'll freeze if we stay here or I can't manage without my CPAP machine for another night). I've got maybe another hour's shovelling before I'd be able to get the car out; I'm taking a break.

(Another issue about driving anywhere is: Where would I find a place to park? Really wish the T were running.)

Had virtually no internet on my phone until I thought to come up to the second floor bedroom (which is warmer, anyway); up here I have enough to post to LJ and SSH to my mail server.

I'm leaving my phone off most of the time, but feel free to text if you want to get in touch with me.

Hope y'all're staying dry, warm, loved, and safe. Me, for now I'm settling for loved and safe.

I have off-street room for a car and a guest room in Melrose if you can make it up.

Thanks! We're at plumtreeblossom's in Davis (with Chickenfinger), and boy was it eventful! I thought for a while that I was going to need to take you up on that — long story but the short version is that if plumtreeblossom's second floor neighbors ever need a safe warm place to stay with power for their medical equipment wheree they and their kitty aren't going to freeze to death, I hope they don't call me.

By the way, I have now shovelled my car out of a snowdrift *on the interstate*. (Well, actually, about a yard off the interstate at the end of the entrance ramp. But still. And technically, I think we actually were on the interstate, just not yet quite to the plowed part.)

Sounds like an adventure worth NOT repeating. Glad you're warm and safe. *hugs*

Be well. (to both of you!)

Thank you!

a quincy resident told my SIL (also in quincy) that power is starting to come back in some neighborhoods. so, hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer.

Thanks! I'm having a hard time making any sense of the National Grid outage map, but hopefully not too long.

SIL's had power back for a couple of hours now. And they're not that far from you.

That sucks! Best of luck.

Thanks! Safe at plumtreeblossom's now.

Thanks. We're safe and warm at plumtreeblossom's with Chickenfinger. (The two cats are *not* happy about the situation!)

Well, she hissed when they first met, but since then she's been hiding and absolutely silent, which is unlike her and a bit unsettling. We're looking for her now.

I like your mental image better. :-)

Sorry to hear you've lost your electricity! I hope they get it back on soon.

Thank you! Me too. In the meantime I'm warm and safe at plumtreeblossom's.
