Power is still out day 4

So we have now been without power for over 98 hours we are living out of suitcases. The staff is staying a hotels or relative near by. This is crazy there are some streets with power others are not. The timing is horrible as people are complaining about last minute shopping and not being home for three days. You here stories of how people coup without heat, some have generators, some have gas stoves, one person said he uses his gas grill propane tank. The biggest thing we notice as we are in the library again, about 10 miles south from the outage area. Is how connected and plugged into the grid we are, cell phones need charging, laptop batteries run down, ipod loses life. We have spent most of the time searching for ways to charge things we cannot use at the office. My best friend has been the itouch as it holds a charge a long time. It finds wi-fi spots for my laptop so it does not need to be turned on until one is available. Music can get you through anything and having a new Guns N Roses CD could not have come at a better time. The cell phone has a car charger so we can run out to the car crank the heat, charge the phone get the update. Last night they were over 100,000 homes without power in the area the last report is we will have power by 8pm tonight. No one is holding their breath though.

Would it even matter the things that I’d say
You made your mind up and gone anyway
And there’s no use now in dragging it on
Should’ve seen it coming all along
