It’s been 5 days since the storm knocked out my power. August’s record rainfall left our giant 150-year-old maple tree full of leaves, and the wet, heavy snow brought down more than 50% of it’s canopy. I don’t know if it can survive.
The Orange & Rockland Electric Company is completely incompetent. It’s been 5 days and I haven’t seen a single repair truck from the power company in my town since the storm. Also, I used their website to report my outage, and when I check the status they have “cleared” the outage online; but without actually fixing anything. Once might be a misunderstanding, but they have “cleared” my outage 3 times and still no power. It seems hopeless.
Below if a picture of the meal I made right after the blackout hit; a little bit of everything from my fridge; chicken, leeks, mushrooms, bell pepper, even salami. I deglazed the pan with some red wine and thicken into a nice sauce with corn starch. I haven’t been able to eat anything decent since; because I’ve been too busy with cleanup and the extra work of living without electricity.
One more picture to demonstrate the untimeliness of the storm; my summer flowers were still in bloom.
