I am happy to announce that we now have power back. That crazy ice storm last Thursday was just crazy enough to cause some major damage. We got our power back today (Monday) a few hours ago and I couldn't be happier!
Thank God I had a candle obsession or we would have been screwed.
I don't know how people did it back in the day, but this whole "No Power" thing is not for me.
I ventured out on Friday to buy some food that wouldn't go bad right away, (ex. fruit) and found myself at Stop and Shop where it looked like the whole store was having a Going Out Of Business Sale. There were whole shelves just completely cleared off.
I went to go look for a few gallons of water (like every one else apparently) and found a frenzy in the isle. It was like a bunch of sharks fighting over a big dead seal.
I started filling my cart and had maybe 4 gallons before a ridiculously FAT man literally pushed me out of his way and blocked the rest of the isle with his shopping cart.
Touch me again and you're being reported.
After the water glutton decided he was finished he uncorked himself from my path I was able to proceed.
Trying to just hurry up and get what I needed so I could blow this Popsicle stand, the power in the store goes out and one of the employees stocking selves starts throwing a hissy fit and yelling across the store.
"OH MY GOD! I CAN NOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING TO ME!"
He dude! Shut up!
"This is just crazy!! I can't handle this anymore! I need a break! I can't believe this is happening to ME!"
OK, well please take one because clearly you're "that guy" who over reacts to situations that no one else can stand to work with. (We all have one of those guys...or girls)
Then he throws an empty box and has another irritating tantrum.
Trying to leaving the store was just as much fun too. Oh yay!, the traffic lights are out.
Enter The Milford Gridlock of Death if you dare!
Oh I dared.
And thank heaven I made it. Some people are just a$$ holes behind the wheel.
Like the old, deaf and apparently blind man who tried to drive into the side of my car today and didn't even flinch or turn his head when I held my horn down for a good 20 to 30 seconds.
You gotta hate- I mean, LOVE the mall this time of year.
