    We've had a night of extremely high winds, many many trees down, power out all over the place, schools closed today.

    I lost several large branches last night from the maple out front--one narrowly missed hitting me in the head as I was out there moving another one! That was scary.

    Sirens went off all night long....whew. Glad it's over.

    ditto here shecrab!

    we have been without power since 9:30 pm Sunday. still out. they tell me I'll be out until Friday night. seems our little development is a pocket that just can't be fixed yet.

    sitting in a Panera Bread (Austintown) using the wifi right now. but need to go pick up my son from riding. when I'm not working at the school district I am keeping the fridge items on ice, cleaning up the back yard and been to the laundromat. Holiday Inn is calling my name.........................................

    You can come stay with me. (we could then do some hunt thinking and visit Roanoke Island and Charleston). Seriously, let me know how I could help you, and yes, my door is open. (I am in Raleigh)

    Have some Panera Green Tea...and make them give you free refills.

    I heart panera.

    Hopefully you'll get some mild temps.

    Still without power here. Garbage man took away A LOT of food from our freezer and fridge ~ food that just wouldn't keep in ice chests. Well over 72 hours now and they keep promising power back.

    Anyone else having power problems?

    Getting awfully tired of sitting in a coffee shop charging my puter and phone, eating out and showering in the dark in the am. At least it's not below zero out so I guess there is always a brite side. I just wish brightness would infuse my home at night once again!

    We're okay where we are. They got the power back on yesterday in Akron in most parts...my friend ML was storing some of her food in my fridge, and she came and got it last night.

    Things getting back to "normal". (Say it in quotes because it's so not normal anywhere anymore!)

    Jean...you're welcome to come visit! I have hot showers/food and light!

    Thanks C. But kid needs to go to school and we do have hot water at least. I am working this week as well. We are getting thru. Struggling. But getting it done.

    Thanks again.
