Been without power here since about 5PM today following in the wake of Hurricane Irene. We thought we were in the clear when we woke up this morning and still had our power after a night of torrential rain and strong winds, but alas we were not.

We read some books until it got dark, had a nice little candlelit dinner, took the AC out of the bedroom window so we’d have some air coming in, then went outside for a little stargazing.

A LIPA truck just drove down the block, hopefully to assess the situation which will hopefully lead to a speedy repair. Hopefully.

For now we’ll be hanging out listening to the soothing sounds of the wind through the trees, the crickets, and the neighbors’ generators.
