Still no power…

Posted by laurie on November 5, 2012

At night we sleep on the Aerobed with the fireplace running (Phillip feeds it several times each night). With the tarps keeping in the heat it was in the 60s. Toasty warm, comparatively speaking. Audrey posted yesterday (#19) that her power was finally restored, and that without a generator or fireplace the house got to as low as 48 degrees. Brrrr!

The boys enjoy the down comforter during the day.

And Phillip and I enjoy dressing up Mr. Pillow Man.

    Luxury camping at its’ finest! I love the Beagle pillow sandwich 🙂 Stay warm and safe. The Campbell pack send hugs (())

    Mr. Pillow Man doesn’t look too happy. 😉 Glad to hear that you’re nice and warm at night. Be safe!

    Yall have really got it going on in the living room! What about food – people food? I hope yall continue to be okay – I know it is very hard but it is so good that you have the generator and fire! And two Beags to keep you cozy and warm!

    Well, at least you are warm. When do you think you’ll get power back? My brother in town just got his back today. 90% of the town lost power.

    Looks cozy, except for Pillow Man. Bet they like the fireplace. Hang in there, hopefully the power will be back on soon. I would much rather have the fireplace, than the noise from the Generator. But that would be
    a little silly in 100 degrees here in Houston. 🙂

    The other night it was 39 out side, 55 in the kitchen and a balmy 66 in the living room. Under the comforter with two heaters, model K-9B (Black, brown and white option), we are toasty.

    I’m sorry you still don’t have power, but I don’t know which picture I like more: the boys snuggling or Mr Pillow Man. Thank you for continuing to give us all something to smile about!

    Isn’t it amazing how beagles always manage to make themselves comfy, no matter what the circumstances?!!! They are masters at it! So glad to hear you continue to be OK, here’s hoping you get the power back before Friday!

  9. Sending Laurie, Phillip, Stan and Sherm warm thoughts and hugs. We have a fireplace – but I was afraid to use it. A tree had fallen against the house and hit the chimney. I can’t see what damage has been done and did not want to risk a fire. Some siding may be damaged too. I can’t tell yet. Both Buddy and Holly were great cuiddlers. I was usually a beagle sandwich at night – but on some nights it was so cold – they tried to sleep right on top of me. Last night we cranked the heat up- and it was almost too warm. They both slept in their doggie beds. I think it was a bit too hot for them. I have lost all the food in my frig and large upright freezer – two broken windows, a fence crushed by the tree, Gutters and downspouts crushed and a large trellis in the back is totally in pieces. I heard that you have to tell you insurance that you have damage from a tropical storm and not mention the word hurricane – in case your home owners does not cover hurricanes !

    • I think the operative word is WIND damage. Be sure to check your insurance policy thoroughly before making a claim. I believe you have to have a special Wind policy. I know we do for the condo and the deductible is something like 5%, which can be a lot.

    I think that is the first picture I have ever seen where Stanley was asleep and Sherman awake! Glad you have your little space heaters on hand. 🙂

    Hope the latest storm that they are forecasting does not happen for the east coast! Positive thoughts from Minnesota to all on the east coast!

    I’ve been checking in every morning, but haven’t commented… waited until I got into work, and then am so busy, didn’t have time to post!

    Glad to hear that everyone is okay, sad to hear of the damage of the DD Families’ homes (although happy it wasn’t worse!).

    I read in the paper that we sent some Hotshots from Vandenberg Air Force Base (California) back east to help out (meeting up with other Hotshots around the country)…

    Audrey, how is Holly’s dewclaw? Hopefully she’s feeling better…
    Sounds like all back east are having “Four Dog Nights”, not three 🙂

    Still sending positive thoughts, prayers, and puppy slobbers (and kitty purrs) from the Lash Pack in California….

    • Holly ‘s dewclaw is still a bit sore – or so it sounds. The Vet said that he put something on it that was bitter and bad tasting so that she would not continue to lick at it- and it didn’t stop her one bit. If I catch her trying to lick and fuss with it – I try to distract her – but it usually doesn’t work. She is yelping a lot less that before – so it has to be getting better !

      I swear that the nights now are 5 dogs nights ! Brrrrrrrrrrr

    Thinking of you during the Sandy recovery; hope you get your power restored soon! Good to see the boys are doing well and keeping each other warm. The down comforter looks nice and toasty to snuggle into. Stay safe and warm!
