We lucked out yesterday and filled one tank. This morning I got half a tank for the other car. So we have enough gas for another week and by that point I really hope this gas shortage over. Apparently the nor’easter knocked out power at two of the lines that bring gas to the terminals where the tankers pick it up for the stations. That slowed down everything again.
Good luck to everyone else who is trying to get fuel.
Today Peter is off to the presentation of the new Balloons for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. He will be one of the Balloon Handlers for Spiderman again this year. He had a great time last time so he is doing it again.
I think we are sticking close to home for another week. I would have liked to go to the Labyrinth sing-a-long last night at BAM but transport was spotty at best and I would have been out later than the trains run right now. It is going to be another week or so until things are back to normal there.
We did luck out that the weather is going to be nice for the next couple of days which will help around here.
Today is about Caroline and me. We are probably going to be going out for a short while to the library and the like. With any luck the library will have power today. It has been closing at sunset because it was running on generator power. They were handing people flashlights to go into the stacks and find their books. Either way it is a Mommy and Daughter day.
I think I am going to start with cleaning and then go onto the next activity.
I am grateful for gas in the cars.
