|The Persistence of Roots|
afternoon, had dinner with friends (one without power too, once in a restaurant with electricity). Tony, my significant other, and I played Scrabble by candlelight one night. Sadly, he beat me 259 to 267! Obviously, he had better letters.
One of the first things I heard on the radio, driving over to a friend's who did not lose electricity, was a guy on NPR saying how the storm had affected him: His Aeroflot flight was cancelled and he and his wife had been on their way to the Ukraine to pick up a child they were adopting...sometimes you just have to shrug and see the irony. I listened to the radio for about five minutes that day, and that is what the Powers That Be wanted me to hear?
The day after the storm, we drove around and came across this most unusual downed tree--the center core was so strong it did not break, though the tree fell over in the wind. You can imagine what it made me think of--right in line with what Jane has been writing about in the last two blog posts. --lorraine
