So, I have some posting to catch up on. And I probably still don't have power, because my current expected restoration time is Monday at 11 pm. But today’s post is something I wrote whilst it was hurricaning out. Look, I even drafted it in a notebook, see:
Things I Do Not Like About Hurricanes
1. Losing Power
This happened at about 4 pm Monday. Not fun at all. It was like this:
Then sirens started going off and I knew I was done for.
2. Super Scary Sounding Explosions that Turned Out To Be Transformers Blowing
This is what it sounded like:
This is what it actually was:
3. No internet or laptop
I didn’t want to use my laptop at all after I lost power, so I could use it to charge my my iphone. And thank god for that iphone
|Boys boys..don't fight over me.|
Seriously though. It got me though the storm
4. Losing Contact with Boyfriend
Boyfriend texted that he lost power Monday night. Then I didn’t hear from him ALL DAY TUESDAY.
It turns out a cell tower went down so he had no service at all and had to shut his phone off. But I didn't know that.
On a scale of 1 to ten, that makes me super insanely nutty
Luckily, he texted me when he got power back, 3 am Wednesday morning. Lucky bastard.
5. Being Cold
It got pretty cold:
6. Running out of wine.
Bad fucking planning on my part. I need to get a bigger apartment so there’s room for the wine cellar I plan on installing.
7. Being Forced to Read Cosmo by Flashlight
Seriously, I had to put down the iphone at a certain point to conserve some battery. That was all I had around. Nuff said.
8. Not Blogging or Tweeting
I went from being all happy like this:
Understandably, service hasn’t been great. I miss blogs.
In conclusion, hurricanes are scary piles of bullshit. I'm grateful it wasn't worse for me, but ugh. Next post: What happens when you lose power for ____ days (I leave that blank because at the time of typing up/scheduling this post, I still don't have power. It's Saturday at 7 pm and I'm at a Starbucks)
