Go Big or Go Home!

We decided to get more gas for the generator, since the power company is saying this outage will go on for days for some customers.

We made it out of our neighborhood OK, but in the 2 mile drive along a numbered route to a highway, we passed several downed trees, and had to squeak under a couple of downed or loose and sagging powerlines. All to get to the nearest shopping area where there was no power and no gas.

I got a little freaked out by it and decided one of us should stay at the house. And it should be me - with the pup of course!

So Jim dropped me off, and uneventfully found a gas station that had power.

The nearest shopping malls are the only place around with power, so they are packed like it's the day before Christmas.
