View Full Version : DANG! Irene Was NO Lady!!!

08-29-2011, 05:46 PM
Thanks to Hurricane Irene, our electricity went out on Saturday around 2:30 PM and itís still out!!!!!

Iím cranky today (at work now) because it was too hot to sleep, so I tossed and turned all night, and I just threw everything in my fridge and freezer in the dumpster.

I had just gone grocery shopping a few days ago Ė What a waste of $$$$$$$

However, I must thank and praise God for His protection during the storm...

...The winds were vicious and amazingly strong and the rains soaked the ground to the extent that HUGE trees were uprooted and fell on houses, vehicles, power lines and unfortunately, some people. http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/kopfschuettel.gif

The weekend was rough = No A/C, No Church services, tons of property damage and feeling sad and disoriented...

...BUT, it could have been worse. http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_neutral.gif

Yes, it sure could have been worse. I'm glad you are safe.

feeling sad and disoriented...

Since that's my normal state... I can't imagine what you're going through, but I am delighted to hear you and hubby are okay and still here with us!

I'm glad you're okay, hater. Though I still mourn the loss of your bacon.

(lurves you)

I hope your power comes on soon! And that you don't have much cleanup to do. I was worried about y'all. I'm so glad you checked in.

It's cooler than it could have been. That's at least a plus. No power and no AC is so hard! You can't even run a fan.

I cried when I chucked the Bacon and the Haagen-Dazs in the dumpster.

But I still haz my grits! ;)

The Haagan Daz too?


This is tragic. I'd be emotionally scarred.

The Haagen Daz too?


Yep, two pints of Rum Raisin! :rant:

So wish that hadn't happened, verny and to any others who were adversely affected by Irene. Not good at all. Prayers and good vibes sent.

Oh noez nobody told you the rule?????

If the power goes out, not flickering, but out. After the first five minutes you open that freezer and get the Haagan Daz out and eat it.

Didn't you see Jurassic Park???

Well, now you know and you'll be ready with your spoon next time.

again (((hugs)))
