Hi Zinya....thanks for clarifying the email name. I had no idea who was talking to me, just thought it was another person hooking up with us.
Yes I did get caught in the blackout on Thursday. It sure makes you realize what you take for granted. My husband and I had to dig through our wallets for change to go and get ice for our coolers to keep food fresh. We never carry any money on us, just use our debit/credit cards which of course were useless. It was quite the experience, quite un-nerving if you know what I mean. At first I thought it was just a city blackout due to an accident but when I found out that Toronto also had no power I began to get nervous. My husband then called me to let me know that there was no power from Detroit to New York...your first thought was it was a Terrorist attack on a power station. It's wierd not really knowing what's going on.
On Friday we had power but were sent home from work, only essential employess stayed. My husband and I went to Walmart and it was crazy. People buying batteries, water, etc. The line ups were really long. The grocery stores were pretty bare..hardly any meat or produce.
We had rolling blackouts throughout the weekend but so far this week we seem to be okay. Businesses are told to cut back on power usage. They are saying the real test will be Wednesday and Thursday as our temperature climbs up to 90 degress with the humidity making it feel more like over 100 degrees.
I'm glad to hear that you guys may come back to the string. Sure do miss you all.
Take care and give my best to everyone,
Willie
