All Halloween Eve passed with lots of kids getting comic books from us and candy from others. We had a bunch of teens running up and down the street egging houses and cars as they went. But the local constabulary caught up with them and that stopped.
Caroline doesn’t have school until Monday and that is still a maybe. She does have off Tuesday for Election Day. Most of the schools in the district have power but not all yet. There are also areas that the buses can’t get to safely and they want to give a couple of days to finish clearing the roads.
Today I am going to venture out. I have a dental appointment this morning that had to be rescheduled from Monday. We are out of milk, bread, and eggs among other things that we need. We also need cat food and other cat related stuff. Nothing dire, just want to make sure we have it. So that is going to be a trip out. I am also hoping to get some more gas in the car but not crossing my fingers on that one.
You can now get off Long Island but it will take you quite a while. Limited train and bus service will help commuters get where they need to go.
We seem to be in a bit of a holding pattern as we sort out what needs to be done but slowly we are returning to normal.
I ask that you think good thoughts for those who are going to have a much longer road to normal. I have a couple of friends who are rebuilding their lives from the ground up. They are fine and their pets are fine but their possessions are no longer. They have to sift through what reminds to see if anything can be salvaged.
I am really hoping that we have garbage pick-up today. It is starting to pile up around here.
Yes, I am going to give a go at writing a novel this month. Let’s see how long that goes.
I am grateful that Caroline had such a nice Halloween.
