Just got our power/phones back last night, what a week. We had high winds and some rain but no flooding in our area. Lots of trees down and power lines, roads closed, school called off. First day of school was Monday but with power out and roads blocked they moved first day to next Tuesday. I think 11 roads in just our town are still closed off...In town they were lucky they didn't lose power, everyone outside of town did. My SIL lives in town so we did have a place to go to shower, thank goodness! Ran out of water quickly, I thought I'd have enough for a day or two and then power would be back on, not. Lost power early Sunday morning and only got it back last night and only because we're on the main line that Wal-mart and Stop&Shop run on. Go down the road about half mile from me and they're still out.
It hasn't been to bad, everyone kind of pitched in and helped where they could. We got pool water from dh's mom's pool for flushing and dh dropped a barrel off to our neighbor, he was running out. Dad let us use his small generator so we could run the fridge and not lose everything in the freezer. One neighbor let others take his generator so other could plug in and not lose what they had in freezers. Dh took it to a couple of the elderly and stayed while they used it and then brought it back to the owner
