We are going on 4 days without power now.
It sucks. We are fortunate enough to have water (and even hot water!), so showering is not an issue, although it is kind of tricky in the dark.
In the big picture, we are lucky. We have friends who kindly took in our perishables, we have a surplus of propane camping lanterns and headlamps so that we can get around comfortably, we are back at work, and we have some great weather right now. We are not flooded, as are the Hurricane victims in Galveston. We are mildly inconvenienced.
It still sucks, though. Word is power should be restored by the weekend. I think we will be one of the last to get it back.
