    Another cold night without power. Nellie must be wanting to snuggle for warmth.

    You have a great attitude.. I am tired of the situation. I have electric, cable, but no heat, or hot water. I have my mom, brother, sister inlaw, and the two kids hanging out, off, and on with me, as they have no electric etc.. They are close to a sub station that is rebuilding.. As for the dogs.. My guy is freezing his behind off, and the doodle is enjoying the cold. Now we are being warned about the looters coming through our area, as a lot of people left their houses

    I am so sorry to hear about what you are experiencing on the east coast and am thinking positive thoughts your way. Re Nellie - I'm a bulldog lover (just found some bulldog fabric!) and she looks like such a sweetie.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I am sorry that you are having to deal with this situation. Hang in there as things will be getting better as each day goes by. We have gone thru 2 major ice storms and we survived. Electric was out for at least 2 weeks both times. Our water was off 10 days the first storm. We do have a propane cookstove and we heat with wood, so we were warm and not hungry. When the second storm came we were prepared and decided to just have fun. We had parties every night with close family and friends. Lots of laughter and beer. Just tonight as we were talking about Sandy we started remembering our ice storms. You will be telling stories about Sandy for many years.

    I will continue praying for everyone that was affected by Sandy.

    I am so sorry to hear of all the miserable conditions there on the East coast. Have been watching the news daily and my heart just aches for all the ones who have lost so much. I pray everything will be restored quickly. Can't imagine no heat, no electricity and even food is scarce in some areas. May God Bless you all soon. (((HUGS)))

    I remember when I was a kid the electricity went out and we were the only ones in the neighborhood that had a gas stove and an old gas furnace that didn't need and electric starter. All the neighbors came over and cooked meals and heated baby bottles at our house. We had lots of playmates for the day. Although I think my mom was exhausted by the end of the day when the electricy came back on. Try to make the best of it. The world as we know it now is so dependent on electricity. Just hang in there.

    I do have a positive attitude. My brother brought over his electric heater. I don't like using it, but need to take the edge off the cold. The family should be over pretty soon, and I will be cooking.. Gas fueled stove is a nice thing.. My sister in law, and brother will be going back, and forth between places, as they are afraid of looters.. They live on the edge of an area that has looters, and it's in an upscale area. All their neighbors are not around, and the alarm systems are not working.. I guess I should mention that I live in a one bedroom apt.. Socrates is 18 lbs, and doesn't like to share toys. Doodle is 85, big,a nd boisterous..

    I, too, am without heat/electric. I have the town wired...lol. Keep an upbeat attitude and find new ways to meet the chanllenges. By the way, I may not have heat or electric, but the dog is welcome in my house! What a cutie!

    My heart goes out to you - and my prayers! Take a deep breath and hang in there. if there is anything I can do to help - someone to whine and complain to, feel free. We are doing pretty well except no gasoline. My husband is a physician and on call so he has had to go to the hospital every day at least once (very sick transplant patients). Tuesday is my gas day. I'm taking my quilting and my ipod with an audio book loaded and will brave the 3-4 hour lines.
    Re looting. After this, I plan to get a permit and get a handgun. My husband was an Israeli army officer and knows how to use and I will take a couple courses. I think one shot fired above the head of a looting mob will make them think twice...

    Kathryn, you think like I do regarding weapons. Just be sure and shoot straight into air or straight into ground. Don't want someone to say you were shooting at them or pointing a gun at them (lol). We don't want to have to get you out of jail, so you can post here (lol).

    Prayers are continuing for everyone that was affected by Sandy. Hugs

    Nellie is a cutie. I've always wanted a bull dog. Praying for everyone affected by Sandy. I've been without power before due to ice storms and straight line winds. The winds took out power out in July one time. I would rather it take it out during the winter. We can moved to the deer camp for wood heat. I just can't handle the 100+ temps anymore.

    Nellie is precious. Of course, being from GA, and our university mascot being a bulldog name UGA, I'm not prejudiced or anything. Hope everything gets back to normal for you soon. In the meantime, you have an adorable companion.
