Crazy week, aftermath of the storm, upcoming elections etc. etc.

253094_10151336998513132_351638448_nSo we made it through the storm. All in all it wasn't too bad here where we are in our part of CT. Don't get me wrong the storm was still pretty epic and we had a lot of down trees and wires which meant no power for a lot of people. About 60% of Danbury lost power. Luckily we didn't at home or at work. Especially work was a big relief. Last year during hurricane Irene and during the blizzard in October we lost power at work both times. So definitely could have been worse.

Work was a nightmare all week nonetheless but that was to be expected. A lot of areas got affected pretty badly, especially at the coast and also near the Hudson in NY. Lots of flooding, power outages, destruction etc. So that meant lots of issues for our deliveries plus customers without power etc. 

Still can't complain of course when you see the destruction of some areas in NJ and NY. We are really lucky that we weren't in those areas. So just have to be thankful for that and deal with the aftermath of it all. Things will slowly go back to normal as they always do. 

Next big thing coming up is of course the presidental election on Tuesday. Let's see how it goes. I am really, really hoping that Obama can hold on and win. I am trying not to think about it too much. Guess we will find out on Tuesday. 

Not too much else new. No big plans for today. On my second cup of tea already today. It's definitely getting towards winter weather now, much colder outside than it has been.

Yay for Whittards. :) I think I had five or six big mugs of tea today. I also did some online xmas shopping this afternoon. I know, I know. Way early but I figured can't hurt to get started.
