Long story to come, right now the short story. We survived intact at home, power was restored last night around 8:30 pm so I have A/C again, which means I can sleep again. Lost a refrigerator and two freezers worth of food, going to buy a generator soonest. The house is unscathed, the chicken coop even made it through without a scratch, tho plenty of water got in. No more Chicken Evacuations. I can't say the rest of the CenLa area survived as well--big chunks of the neighborhood and city are still flooded in places and missing power, fuel and ice (not to mention generators and common sense.)
I've even got a few interesting post-storm photos to share, but since my home cable and telephone services are still dead I'll have to beg your patience for just a little longer. Unfortunately everything at the office is working, including the internet AND the corporate intranet. Also unfortuantely the front doors here at my desk let in gallons of water Monday and the roof leaked badly in back so the whole place reeks of mildew.
Yay home health.
Did I mention it reeks up here?
