Snowtober!

Sunday, October 30, 2011


As I write this I'm sitting in semi-darkness. Why? Because we had a massive snowstorm yesterday! Two days before Halloween. The poor trees -- their leaves were just getting to be so beautiful and then the wind, snow, and ice hit them and WHAM! Many trees around here are down for the count. Too many leaves plus snow plus ice were too much for them.

Yesterday and most of today we were totally without power. You know what that means?

1. No showers, unless you want to take a shower in pure, icy water. I WANT A SHOWER!
2. All the food in our refrigerator is totally ruined and I had to spend the morning throwing it all out (and cleaning the fridge thoroughly). At least the fridge is nicely defrosted now.
3. No TV.
4. No internet.

Anyway, I spent a few minutes today (a beautiful bright, sunny day compared to yesterday!) We had to go out to get some food (all the supermarkets and restaurants in our town are CLOSED -- no electricity). We finally ended up at a Dunkin' Donuts. We passed by many NJ DOT crews cutting down trees. There were broken trees everywhere. We were so sad.








Anyway, PART of our electricity is back and I managed to boot up my computer and it works!

But I want a shower so badly. I'm also hungry and thirsty. Our refrigerator is sitting empty and silent, waiting for the electricity to come back. I can't wait until it works again. I'm tired of eating dry cereal with cups of water.

Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morristown, New Jersey is a beautiful place to visit. Yesterday I explained the history of Fosterfields. Here are a few more photos.

Fosterfields -- A Living Historical Farm, Part 1

Saturday, October 22, 2011


Fosterfields is a living historical farm located in beautiful and historic Morristown, New Jersey. In the first photo of this post, B.J., the very friendly farm cat, is front and center, and Calvin the horse is poking his head through the door. His companion, an almost identical horse with a missing left eye, Hobbes, is inside the stall (yes, they were named Calvin and Hobbes after the comic strip -- my favorite!)
