Icy Adventures, originally uploaded by Folkcat.

250,000 w/o power in NH. Or so my dad in Syracuse told me. I wouldn’t know for sure, ’cause Gryphon and I and the Seven Little Ratties are among those numbers.

Ice on everything. Melting fast now, but the utility crews have their work cut out for them.

Can’t cook – all-electric kitchen. Heat requires electricity to pump water, same w/hot water.

Most of the nearby towns are in same boat, so no restaurants to eat at that don’t cost an arm and a leg.

We managed to gather some basics to eat w/o cooking. Aladdin oil lamp w/mantle puts out enough heat for living room. I’m off to shelves soon to find a book to read.

We’ll be ok here. Back when I can.

Thanks to flickr for making this post possible from my cell phone.

Wow and yikes. At least you’re still dry? and a roof over your head? I hope? And it’s getting better? And you’re all safe and sound?
