This is not as much fun as you said it would be, Jen....

So far.....
Matt has sat on our back porch and watched the transformers blow like it's a fireworks show.
We drove underneath downed power lines and and dodged falling trees at 1:00 am. I have to say, seeing Sunshine pitch black was pretty cool.
Tried to sleep in my in-laws living room with a sick Lucy who is hacking up a lung.
Tried calling 911 to get an ambulance for my grandpa who has not had power to run his oxygen tanks for the last 12 hours. 911 never answered. I finally got a hold of the St.John's emergency room and they are sending someone.
Unsuccessfully attempted to convince my 89 year old grandma to let us come pick her up. She's heating her home with her gas range. Sounds like a fire hazard to me.

What are you all doing?

Well, we have no power, but we're warm, can take hot showers and have been experiencing with what can be cooked on a fireplace insert.
And my 'net access is a 37 Kb modem! Old school...
