    I know all of you have been keeping a watchful eye out for what` s been going on here in our tri state area...The Tomars want to thank you all for your care and concern :hug:...it meant alot to us ...We finally got power back Monday night after 7pm....It was really an ordeal to just try and stay warm (we used the car heater alot while charging our cell phones ) !...Our neighbor has a generator, and offered to hook us up....so we can at least have our frige working and not have to throw away food...it was brutal cold some nights ...but concidering what others have gone through this past week (loosing EVERYTHING and thier homes as well :sad2:)...we are counting our blessings on just loosing a Large Branch from our front lawn Bradford Pear Tree, and having NO power for soo long :sad2:...It was a daunting task sometimes just trying to get gas for our cars and generators :sad2:....Our Gov. has requested and recieved help regarding power Co.`s from many states....we have seen trucks here from as far away as Michigan !! :angel: Thank God for them !!...I hear ya TP2 about Laundry...we are still washing clothes....Soooo Happy that your Power is back on as well :grouphug:...Today we are dealing with another NOR EASTER...but right now it is mainly SNOW here ..I am praying that the winds stay calm , because we may loose power again , and that is my biggest fear right now ...yuk :scared:

    Tomar,

    So so soooooooooooo glad to hear from you too. :thumbsup2 Glad your starting to see some improvements. Finally. Funny we take it all for granted by just flipping the light switch but after a while off >> it makes you so thankful to have it. Hope the gas prices are behaving there too. They should not be taking advantage of our east coast friends, cause everyone needs gas. TP2, was saying what an ordeal it was to get gas if you even could. Sorry about the tree. But sounds like it "fell" the right way. ;)
    Well, you win this years 2012 1st snow to the area. Nothing here yet, and you should be getting our rain to mix in tonight or tommorrow. Ugh.
    Good luck with this storm, hope it is less than what they are reporting. :wizard:

    See if we all moved to florida > it would NOT be cold when this sort of thing happens. :confused3 :)

    mky :cutie:

    Hiya everyone :wave2:

    Happy sunday night. Hope things are getting closer to normal from our east coast friends. pixiedust: pixiedust: pixiedust: Thought I would do a little xmas shopping online. disney has a code for their site so might check it out. {{ shopping code NOT wdw :rolleyes2 }}
    I see from our counter I am at 5 months. WooHoo. :cheer2: It will fly by now with all the Holidays coming.

    EE22, I know your getting close too. :hourglass :cool1: Very exciting.
    Go BEARS tonight big game. :cheer2: I hope they play good or our houses will be UN BEARABLE. ;)

    It was almost 70 here all weekend. Now that the game is starting tonight the temp is supposed to drop 35 degrees and its pouring out. :stir: Should be interesting.

    pixiedust: Tomar & TP2 hoping things start getting better soon. Hang in there. pixiedust:

    Hi Everyone !!
    So after getting 12 inches of snow this past week..and that knocking out our power again until Saturday NIght....I can tell you that IVE JUST ABOUT HAD IT !!! :faint: :scared1::scared1: :faint:
    After Sandy, we were so happy that we came out of it fairly untouched but for falling branches on our tree..and of course NO POWER for almost 2 weeks...but since the snow,...we have lost our front Tree and it is now bent over our front door...we are using our garage doors to get in and out of the house right now ...hopefully our ins. co. will take care of this soon...the power surge after we were re-plugged..has left some of our appliances not working properly...especially the over the stove microwave...thought it was working last night..then out again...coffee pot is toast...and a few other minor things....Hey...we have our lives ..and a roof over our heads...many others here don`t have even that anymore :sad1:
    On a brighter note ....EE22...I am sooo sorry that with all of this mess...I didn`t have any power to come on our thread and wish you a......
    party::bday:party:HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!party::bday:party:
    HOPE IT WAS A MAGICAL, SPECIAL DAY FOR YOU !!!!:cake: :hug::cake:

    Hi everyone :wave2:

    Sorry to have been away so long. I have no idea where the time is going this year.

    I am happy to hear everyone is safe after Sandy blew through. We did okay in this area. Some wind damage and a lot of rain but not damage to the house so all is good. We don't tend to loose power here like they do in the US. If we are without power for 12 hours it is a long outage. Yet in Michigan they will be without power for days after the same storms we have. I guess there are some advantages to our higher taxes and prices. :rolleyes:

    I missed TP2's Birthday and it looks like EE232s as well. Happy Birthday ladies! :cheer2:

    Tomar - did the prince have the proceedure? I hope he is doing okay.

    MKY - I was routing for the Tigers but they could not pull it off. The Blue Jays are the closest Canadian Team but with the Detroit teams so close we tend to cheer for them. We did make it to one game this year and it was fun.

    Happy Planning everyone. Stay safe and warm now with the change to snow storms!
