After The Storm

Hello All!

This will have to be a quick post as I am at work. Our cable/phone/Internet at home are all down so I don't know when I'll be posting again (yesterday's post was done on my cellphone!).

Parts of Springfield look like a war zone. Just Google "Springfield MA Tornado" and you will see it all.

The tornado touched down just two streets from us. Our house, and Teddy-ji (our dog) are both fine. I tried to get home for two hours Wednesday night, but there were trees down everywhere!

I finally parked my car at a local shopping plaza and walked to my house two miles away.

"F" couldn't get through at all and spent the night with his mother in East Longmeadow (the next town over).

We didn't have power and my cellphone's battery was getting low, so all I was able to do was let F and my family know that we were safe.

Fortunately our power came back on later that night and I was able to charge my phone and make additional calls, update Facebook, post to my blog-all through my phone! Ah, Technology!!

I'll try to visit your blogs today, but, if you don't hear from me for a few days, you'll know why. TTFN!


  1. I'm sorry, I didn't know any of this. I'm glad to hear that you are okay. Since our cable/internet/phone was just restored two days ago, all I've been doing is watching my shows that I recorded on DVR. Who knew that there was news out there? I'll google Springfiled Mass and check it out. Take care. m.

  2. how frustrating; but it could have been worse, so I am grateful to hear you are well.
