We’re back on the grid! Going without power for the past two days didn’t stop me from stitching, though. The only electricity I usually need is for a lamp, so I adapted to the circumstances. I felt like a Jane Austen character, sitting and stitching near the light of the window during the day and sewing by lamp light in the evening. Sandy’s high winds blew down a lot of trees in town and some roads along Vineyard Sound were flooded, but we weren’t hit as bad as some places to our south and west. Our neighbor with a generator offered to put our frozen food in their freezer, so we saved some sentimental items from thawing, like soup from our garden veggies and striped bass that our son caught.
