...to everyone for your concern and kind comments. We are still without phone or electricity. Mike left yesterday to go to Boston for the ASTRO meeting. I was originally supposed to go with him, but thought better of leaving the house with no power and this tree on our roof.
He left me his laptop so I am enjoying the A/C and WiFi at Barnes and Noble, and feeling better that some nice men from New York and North Carolina came and cut down the tree this morning. Our backyard looks a lot different than it did here. I am hoping to replace the maple tree with a large Meyer lemon. We'll see what the insurance covers.
I have been going to sleep and waking up early. It has been unseasonably cool, but that is coming to an end. Fortunately it has been cooling off at night, so I can open the windows and cool down the house. Then I close it up in the morning and it stays tolerable downstairs. Upstairs is another story. Thank goodness for our downstairs guest room. I have been doing a bit of knitting and a little stitching, although the lack of good light is not very conducive to that. The cats are fine. They don't mind the heat, don't miss the internet or the sewing machine and they can see in the dark!
