Well, it has been awhile since I posted, but it has been quite hectic here. Hurricane Sandy made it's way through the DC area, thankfully with no damage to our house. Although we were without power for maybe 2 hours, considering that was it, we are terribly lucky. I know what it is like to go through a hurricane and have no power. The last time was in Virginia Beach, Va. and we went without power for a week. Although my sister still has the record, having survived Hugo in Charleston, S.C., they were without power for 3 weeks. I think I added it up, and this is either the 5th or 6th hurricane, I have had to go through. Most of which, were without having a spouse here, if your spouse is in the military the first thing they do, is make sure ships and aircraft make it to someplace safe.
