It's The Wait That Is Excrutiating...
Seriously...yesterday was very stressful...we are not that great with machinery...and this generator thing is freaky scary. It needs to be grounded...and the manual said it shouldn't get wet? Everyone we bought it from knew it was for a hurricane!!! We didn't have a funnel to put stuff into it...my poor Den...he worried and worked for hours to get everything ready. Cables and plugs and what to plug in...we needed help with everything...both of my brothers are engineers...they guided us through this mess of stuff...they are like my dad...they know how to do things that we do not.
So today we sit and wait...everything is closed...schools...companies...offices...and there is an impending feeling of gloom and doom. Watching tv is making us stress even more...and its because we feel as though we have been living this storm since Thursday.
I have books to read and books have come in but somehow I am not even thinking about that. I have to read something that will take my mind off of everything going on outside. We even have our bathtubs filled with water...if we lose power we don't have water either...whoopsie...I almost forgot about that part...another down side to lovely Hurricane Sandy.
Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers...I appreciate them so much!
Again...outside it looks so normal...geese in the pond, no wind, a lovely light rain...that's what makes this whole thing so unbelievable.
