Irene, the Aftermath III

there is still no power, no warm water, no gas. I am back at the Starbucks in Old Saybrook. OSB’s Main Street still seems to be the only place that has power.

Yesterdasy, Gas stations around here were either out of Gas or did not have power to work the pumps. We were almost in Rhode Island until we found a Gas Station that was open.

The weather is perfect. I’d guess about 25°C, sunshine, no wind whatsoever. At night, everything is pitch black. No electrical lights. Perfect for stargazing. And it is really calm. We are adapting to getting up and going to sleep with the sun, it seems.

Nobody knows how long it’ll take till power is back up.

We should have bought a camping gas stove or sth. I’m dying for homemade coffee and real food.

Most of the ice in the fridge has melted by now. Stuff starts to go bad. Nobody’s selling refgigerated goods anyway. So soon we ll be eating crackers, bread and fastfood only.

Sorry, still no pictures. I need to find the time to sort them.
