I got power back after 12 days and phones, internet, and TV after 15 days. I had a small generator that powered my furnace, which was great because it got down to 30 degrees F. at night. I had a camping stove that I cooked on. I'm a volunteer for the Red Cross and as usual, they never have anything I can eat. It is a world full of wheat products and eggs. So, I brought my emergency food: granola bars (29g carb/package).
I'm on a pump, I think 2 months now, so it goes with me everywhere. It was great not having to find a place to inject.
The devastation from this "Super storm" aka "Franken storm" will be here for many years to come.
On Monday night, at the peak of the storm, I made my usual trek around the neighborhood. It is really exciting to push with all of your strength to walk in a fierce wind. We had wind gusts to 96 mph. I live on the north shore of Long Island.
