Well, it‘s been a crazy time here in NWLA. Friday early morning we had a severe thunderstorm that knocked out power to almost 300k customers. Ours went out about 1:30 AM. Our temps have been in the mid-90s and humidity upwards of 80%, mostly sunny but with additional storms popping up. Thanks to herculean effort by utility crews, many from other areas, our neighborhood came back up Saturday night, but our street didn‘t. Continued 👇🏻

ravenlee We finally got power back yesterday around 12:30 PM, or about 83 hours later. We lost everything in our fridge/freezer, we spent one night with friends (who lost power during another storm that night but got it back the next morning) and another at a hotel. The cat was ok but not great, but #DannyBoy is feeling friendly and frisky again. We‘re very happy to be in our own home again, with lights and air conditioning! 8mo
ravenlee I did actually get some reading done, because we had to be as sloth-like as possible to avoid heat exhaustion. Reviews to come later today. Trying to get back to normal this week, while a lot of our area is still without power. 8mo
bookishbitch So sorry to hear! Being without power is rough. 8mo

ravenlee Thank you @bookishbitch @Suet624 @Lindy it was certainly an adventure! 8mo
ravenlee Thanks @Ruthiella kiddo and I had an ongoing fight about the cat - he was going to come to the hotel with us, then he was going to boarding once they had power, and she wanted him with us but I had to balance the stress for him being in a hotel…luckily we avoided all of it but man, it was a challenge. 8mo
Slajaunie Whew! Sorry that happened! The sky keeps threatening thunderstorms but none yet. We need the rain. Thibodaux, LA 8mo
GingerAntics I‘m so glad you guys have power back! I hope you guys can make it through until you can replace the stuff in the fridge and freezer. 8mo

This saying always makes me laugh. Cubans literally call foldouts that because pin-pan-pun is literally the sound it makes when unfolding during the 3 steps 😂

tournevis Makes perfect sense! 6y
