If you look closely at the photo, you will see the big tree branches that fell shortly after my last post, trashing the fence in the field.

We are just back on line this morning. Our power has been out sincethe 28th and only came back last night. The phone, internet and tv came back this morning. Very heavy snow and high winds hit while the leaves were still on the trees. Trees fell onto powerlines. Trees and branches came crashing down all over the roads. Route 6 was closed towards Milford for a long time Tuesday. The interstate was closed for most of a day eastbound Tuesday since wires were hanging down across it. Tractor trailers were being routed onto unplowed state roads and immediately closing them due to accidents or inability to get traction on the greasy wet snow. What a mess.

Eventually our volunteer fire company had to open a shelter for folks who had no heat and no electricity and there were still people in the shelter last night.

Our generator won't run our well pump so it was a hassle getting enough water for the house and the animals. But finally the power came back on last night and the tv, internet and phone – all via cable – were back this morning. Getting back to normal is a great relief. I was going stir crazy in severe internet withdrawal.

On the plus side, I finished the other fingerless glove and am nearly finished with Shrug This, which is a fun knit.

Glad you are back. Listening to everything everyone else went thru I know we are truly lucky to live in the valley. I can't say I would miss the TV or phone but yeah I would be lost without the www! Can't wait to see the mitts and shrug. Have a great weekend.
