DH and I had planned on going north this weekend but with the ice storm and other events those plans were squashed. Most of my town has power restored and things are getting back to normal for us. Yesterday was filled with podcasts and knitting under the one lamp powered by a borrowed generator. Zachsxmas hat is done, toms socks and hat started all thanks to the bad weather and my fully charged iPod.
On the flip side life is not so good for more than ½ of the tenants at properties I manage. Last count was 53/34. Fifty three units without heat - 34 with. In addition to the no heat units, one downed tree at a two family (just on the porch, no personal damage or major roof collapse) and one building of 10 units has no hot water and another unit in a separate building has a faulty heater valve thingy making the furnace leak. He’s got a bucket collecting the water for now, but will need a sump pump soon. Most are in NH but they are in multiple buildings in two different counties. I’d hate to be a maintenance person this weekend!
And I’m thankful this isn’t a real picture (possible future son-in-law)
And since I’m on that topic…... Since Thanksgiving night baby Jesus has been waiting for me each night at the end of my neighbor’s driveway. This is an especially odd occurrence for an atheist. Anyway, I mentioned this to someone and I was corrected. Baby Jesus isn’t waiting for ME. "We" are waiting for him. Long story short, nativity scenes aren’t actually complete until the little guy arrives. I think it’s safe to assume it’s gonna happen sometime soon cuz people are shopping.
