What a difference a day makes!

We actually ate at a restaurant last night.  Now, admittedly, they had a limited menu, but, hey, they were open !  While we were eating, our son-in-law tried calling his home phone.  When his answering machine spoke to him, he knew his power had come back on.  Our daughter, son-in-law, grandson, two grandcats in carriers, and their stuff (including his computer) crammed back into their car and headed home.  The two-year-old had been saying “go home” for several days, so we know he must be relieved to be back with his things.

The saga of the cats and travel is not as happy.  Each cat travels in its own carrier.  One always is a nervous-Nelly about car travel, and must be bathed when he arrives, and his carrier must be washed, too.  On this trip, both cats “lost it”.  Our son-in-law was able to bathe the habitual offender, but cat #2 was having none of it.  This fellow is the size of a beagle, and is used to having his own way.  Finally, s-i-l got a sufficient quantity of water in the bathtub, dropped the cat in, and proceeded to play goalie.  After three intercepts, the cat lost all patience and sank his teeth into s-i-l’s outstretched arm!  You know, it’s not nice to laugh on the phone when someone calls you for first-aide advice!

    Ouch. Glad to hear things are starting to work again, though!

    After ONE day of Hanna, I can only guess what you’ve all been through. Our 6 inches of rain over on the coast during a show? Crazy.
    But we kept power and could get wherever we needed to go.
    Glad everyone is okay…
