I hope you are all safe and sound. We have been without power, heat and regular telephone service since Oct. 29th at 3:15 PM.
Our house is now down to 48 degrees and we have relocated nearby to a friend's house with power.
We cannot get any information from LIPA (our local power authority) as to when power will be restored.
We do have a neighbor who is watching our house and feeding our kittykat.
Fortunately, the only damage (so far) is we lost two large trees in front of our house, but they missed the house and the cars!
We lost around $200 worth of food from the fridge and freezer. To add insult to insult, we also just got hit by a Nor'easter. It took me 4 hours to travel 12 miles!
Now using friend's computer, so will be brief.
Our hearts go out to all our retirees that were impacted by these disasters.
