We Survived Irene


We survived the hurricane last night and we are currently on our 22nd hour of no electricity. Thank goodness I have an all gas stove so we could make pasta with most of our perishable food mixed in. Some casualties in the refrigerator:
-1/2 gallon of homestead creamery milk
– 6 polyface farms eggs
– 10 bottles of condiments
– 8 bags of frozen (not anymore) fruits and vegetables

All my fresh fruits and vegetables should be fine, I cooked my greens into the pasta last night, and I’m crossing my fingers that the herbs don’t get too wilty.

Lessons learned from Hurricane Irene:
– get a gas stove
– combine your hiking gear and cooking gear to make dinner by candlelight, er… headlamp

Hope everyone is safe and well out there!
