Storm Interruption

I wanted to post one other story about international genealogy, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. I have another story about research in Spain.

We had a terrific flood and windstorm on Thursday, and lost electricity. This was followed by a blizzard, an ice and sleet event, then more rain, and finally a good snow. We got our lights back tonight. Thank God for all the assembled electrical line workers from otherparts of New England, other states and Canada that have arrived en masse to correct the problems, trim back the fallen trees and right the toppled telephone poles. They worked tirelessly through the storms, and are still working 24 hours a day. It is anticipated that some parts of New Hampshire won't have their lights for another week or more.

  1. I'm really glad you are ok. Thought there was a problem, considering where you live. What an experience. I think it will be a few more days before we have calm and see sun. But, at least you are fine and have another memory about weather. Think Hawaii!
