Last night (Monday October 31st) we did Halloween. I was worried we would miss it because of the snow-storm and the power outage. But it all worked out. I didn’t wear my CAT IN THE HAT outfit. Now, I am asleep at the the La Quinta. On Saturday, a NorEaster flew in and dumped an unceremonious 12 inches of snow on our State, pulling down trees and of course predictably knocking out the power. This is the second time in as many months having negotiated Hurricane Irene under the same circumstances, except now it is freezing cold. After one night at home and plans to stoke up the fires, we capitulated and escaped to a Hotel. One very scary night in which Poppy dodged power lines and downed trees and thick snow to take us out for dinner and then get us home. There are over one million people without power so we are in good company. If its doesn’t harm you, it makes you tougher, right? O.
