Things I learnt during Sandy

October 29, 2013

On the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy adventure, it seems like an opportune time to reflect on the good things we learned:

  • Fallen trees are an expensive source of fire wood (when you factor in moving them from driveways and paying the guys with the cherry picker who repairs/trims what is left of the trees).
  • A house full of unused Halloween candy is a bad idea. Halloween candy should either be the cheap kind that you don’t like or bought last minute. Unused candy should be donated ASAP if Halloween is cancelled.
  • Alternative charging sources for electronic gadgets are of the utmost importance.
  • Don’t tell nanny this one – but it took a Hurricane to get us all to go to church together. One of the local church halls was a fantastic place to let the kids run around and charge our gadgets.
  • Chocolate, red wine and fires are an excellent source of warmth.
  • It is a great time to meet your neighbours and it restores your faith in the community.
  • In desperation, champagne can be chilled on front step when it is cold outside.
  • The Library with its books, power outlets becomes the hottest ticket in town.

Thanks fully we didn’t have to put this new found knowledge to good use 🙂
