That's right folks! We not only survived the hurricane without having to evacuate, but we also survived over 72 hours without power with a video game dependent 14-year old, a t.v. addicted 5-year old, and minimum food spoilage. Of course our checking account took a substantial hit, as the banks were all closed because of the power outage but the clearing houses were all open, so that money I had sitting in the savings account just sat there instead of getting into the checking account where it really needed to be. Oh well. Worse things have (and did) happen as a result of the storm so I'm feeling very blessed.
I was a good little blogger, and made sure to charge the camera battery so I've got some pretty surreal photos to share once I get home to upload them. Unfortunately, I'm right smack dab in the middle of finals again and I've been without power or computer access so I'll be busy for a good week, but if I get some spare time I promise a proper blog post complete with photos and a full debriefing of the last three days. Now, back to work :)
