Hey everybody, I'm alive, and there are no trees or water in my living room, so I feel pretty lucky. The storm hit hard, we're still out of power, although it is slowly returning to a few business in the area - like the library, where I, along with about 200 other people are on the internet for the first time in days. Luckily, our hot water didn't go out, and we did have a small generator which has kept the food cold...unfortunately finding gas to run it is, at best, impossible, and at worst, downright dangerous. Aside from people rioting and fighting over gas, mostly everyone's pulled through to help one another. My dad also managed to hook up the heat to the generator, so after 3 nights of sleeping like we're camping in the adirondacks, we finally had heat...but now there's almost no gas left. It's not really a problem, though. We can charge our phones too...but...no cell service. I can text in and out, but can't call. I spent last night in the ER for dehydration/hyperemesis....but the best part...after my ultrasound was canceled due to the hurricane, I got one at the ER, and SAW THE ITTY BITTY HEARTBEAT AND LITTLE BABY SPINE AND IT WAS WIGGLY AND PERFECT <3 Not sure how long we'll be without gas or internet...they said expect more than 10 days, but so far it's been nearly 4 and I'm thinking we might have it back in a few more days. The dogs think the hurricane is super-great because everyone is off work/school and home to PLAY...I have some great pictures but don't know when I'll be able to share them. Hope everyone else is safe/warm/well-fed.
