    So sorry

    We had a Nor'Easter - sorry I didn;t put up the new pet, dog and cat today. By the time my computer and I were in the same place at the same time, they would have only had a half the day, so I will post new pets tomorrow.

    Lots of branches down, power outages, etc, roads impassable for hours, but everyone is okay, so that counts, except we lost two dear birds to predators.

    I was just thinking of you! I’m sorry about the birds. I’m glad that you are safe, though no power is always a challenge. (((Hugs)))

    I'm glad you're all right, Karen! I'm so sorry you lost your two beloved birds.

    New apologies - yesterday I got the day's Cat of the Day page up, then got a phone call that the café manager's 21-year-old son was in a terrible car accident, and had been med-flighted to Dartmouth, New Hampshire. The cafe is in the same building as the little Post Office where I work, and I sometimes help out there, so I immediately went down to help cover things, and ended up being away from home until 9 pm.

    Please keep George and his son, whose name I do not know, in your prayers.

    I hope George's son will be all right! Life happens, Karen. No apologies needed.

    So much of Vermont is without power, our farm included. I am now down at the Post Office where there is electricity. So I will updates the sites for tomorrow. They had no power down here earlier, but it got restored. There are trees and power lines down all over the place.

    George’s son is home and may be blind in one eye, but is slowly recovering. He was not wearing his seatbelt and smashed his head on the roll bar of his Jeep and needed over 100 stitches in his scalp. George thanks everyone for their prayers.

    Earlier today they said the power should be back on today by 3:45 pm. However there is still a tree down that took power lines with it on our road, and now the power company has "no projected time for restoration."

    But the new pets are up, just posting from the base of the hill, where there is both heat and electricity!

    Thank you. Sorry I didn't get the sites updated yesterday - it was a chaotic day, and we are trying to get everything ready for the coming storm. Lost two guinea fowl yesterday, they got hit by a car, so that was sad. But they are not the smartest of birds. And the man stopped and helped me carry the bodies inside, which was helpful. He admitted he was going too fast and apologized.
