Our temps are in the low 7-'s. I had to make a run to the store earlier. As I turned the corner the breeze was blowing in from the ociean. I could smell the salt air.

Isaac was a little more vicious than I expected. Starting Tuesday, the power went out at 6pm and wasn't restored until Saturday night at 9 pm. 99 hours without power! It was miserable. Hot, muggy waiting for the refrigerator food to go bad. We did have water, and cold showers helped.

Then... once the power was restored, I found out that the cable was out, no Internet and no TV.

The TV is still not receiving a signal, but I was so grateful to find the internet is now working.

All of us were worried about you. So glad to see you back here safe and sound. Did you have any water damage?

Thanks, Addie. Miss you guys too.

The carpet in the bedroom is now water marked and not quite dried out, but no biggie.

That's it as far as I know.

So glad you're OK, Zhizara!

90+ here along the river. Hedonistically floating around the pool on my floaty thing with my Kindle in its waterproof case, minimal rugrats. Last day of summer,

How luxurious, Dawg. Enjoy! Do you have someone to cook for you later? Maybe some eye candy pool boy?

No, DH is taking a nap, he's not bad, and I'm the cook.
