242: It's all a matter of perspective.

Photobucket
The power came back on last night! I was surprised it came back so soon. We also found out power was back at the university so Rick has to get back to work tomorrow. Boo! Walking around the neighborhood again today I discovered some of our neighbors are still without power. Around town many gas stations are running out of gas, some stores are still closed, and some traffic lights are still out. It makes me think about how different everyone's perspectives of the storm will be. Our neighbors right next to us never lost power. Our power was out for nearly 3 days but we had a generator to run our fridge, freezer, and some fans. Our neighbor across the street lost power, but didn't have a generator. And another neighbor across the other street still doesn't have power. Everyone will have a different story to tell.

Wow. that is crazy to think how different the power situation has been for everyone even though you're all neighbors.

I'm glad yours was only out for 3 days this time.
