Afternoon from Ellenville T and Slicers,
After a bit of deep thinking this morning, just before my day began, I started making a decision, re-considering my initial decision to hanker down for the upcoming blizzard by myself. Actually, last night, Marie-France, a local friend with a generator, opened the door, inviting me to join her for the storm ahead. She got me remembering and rethinking losing power during serious storms.
Now in this Year 2, as I brewed my first coffee of the day and walked my apartment, I began to trouble shoot and consider friends/family with generators.
Last year, just weeks after you left I worried about the events of emergency without you. Who would be there for me? But that was year one…
Year 2… I’m calmer when I have to trouble shoot surprises. Marie France is in Rockland, but my brother Jeff and Marla in Ellenville and I can always go home and feel comfortable waking up tomorrow morning in pjs CNBC on the kitchen tv for Jeff and Morning Joe dueling in the living room for me.
Just one quick phone call, a scan of the apartment and I was preparing for a ride up the Thruway after a guitar lesson and a periodontal evaluation.
So I am with family. My car is stowed in my dad’s garage and Marla is making cauliflower soup. I’m missing dinner out with you at Bone Fish, our usual way to welcome a storm, but no worries. I’m in a good, warm place where there will always be light and heat,T. You couldn’t even guarantee that.
