My Halloween Weekend

pumpkin Snow began falling at noon on Saturday at my house. By dawn Sunday, 14 inches of snow was on the ground.

We lost power and Internet access at 2 AM Sunday. We still do not have power or Internet access this morning (I am writing this from work).

I took my sister to the hospital for her morning surgery yesterday. Her doctor gave us the big thumbs up after the 90-minute surgery.

We went home to deal with the power outage, then returned to the hospital when we found out what time she would be out of the recovery room and moved to her room.

She showed up at 5:30 PM and was in great spirits. We visited with her until she chased us out so we could score some food (McDonald’s) and go home to stoke the wood stove to try to heat the house.

I thank you all for your concern and positive thoughts  regarding my sister’s surgery. So far, so good.

It is going to take awhile for me to catch up with all your comments and e-mails, but I assure I will do so as soon as I get Internet access at home.

By the way, because of the storm and power outages, the governor postponed Halloween, so we had no trick or treaters visiting us last night, but that did not stop me from breaking open a bag of Almond Joys!

And so it goes.


  1. Best wish to all of you in CONN. On Long Island where I live we missed snow
    Hugs Diane

  2. I am glad your sister's surgery went well. My wife had two doctor appointments for today and one cancelled due to no power. We lost our juice Saturday afternoon and I understand it came back today. Sunday night was cold and there is only so much heat coming from the fireplace.
    The Triangles Halloween party that was set for the 29th has been rescheduled for 11/5. I have about a 10% chance of going but it is worth keeping in mind.
    Stay well and warm while the power is out.

  3. Sorry to hear about the fun you had with the early present from Old Man Winter, but good to hear some good news on your sister's surgery. Hope the power comes back real soon, so you can have some heat in the home.

  4. Hello Stana,
    Glad your sister and you are OK, I hope you have your power back and have heat, next Halloween will be better for you and your sister.
    All my very best.
