Welcome back to civilization.

@FutureMemory Can a question from Hypo be far behind?

Yay! You’re going to need a new cake in your frizzer, I imagine, along with lots of other food. Should we send you a care package? How is the rest of your area doing?

janbb's avatar

@augustlan My beloved boardwalks are gone as are some entire shore towns. My immediate neighborhood suffered more from downed trees than flooding so does not look too bad.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Yes, I’d like to know it. And now I do!

Once you get a new cake for your frizzer, I can start on making you some pancakes.

Is Snookie and Deena alright?

I’ll be right over with bleach & cleaning supplies to help with the fridge ;) Yippee!

janbb's avatar

@SavoirFaire Pancakes sound great! :-)

@SpatzieLover Your offer sounds pretty great too!

@johnpowell They told me they are. Can’t keep Jersey folk down!

@janbb So very happy you are back home. I really do understand your sadness at the loss of your boardwalks, but I’m so glad your home is intact. Welcome home little penguin!

@janbb Some people will spare no effort to get great question awards, won’t they? ~

Just teasing. I was without power for nearly a week some years ago in Virginia, but the weather was mild. Glad you didn’t have to stay there and live in a climate like your avatar would love. My heart goes out to all who did have to put up with the cold and no heat.

To paraphrase a certain penguin – mazel tov!

I’d like to think you stood up to sing this song, maybe in the library, but somehow I doubt it.

bookish1's avatar

Huzzah! Thank you for letting us know.

@ucme: I was hoping that was the song that you had posted.

Shippy's avatar

Yay! The little penguin can thaw out.

Glad to hear it. Electricity is great!

Get the jelly music on and let’s start a Jelly line dance!

ucme's avatar

Course, if it were me i’d yell like a bastard!

One year we were out of power (in USA) for 5 days because of snow conditions. Thank goodness for kerosene heaters! I had the salt water aquarium wrapped in blankets. I didn’t have many fish in it so they made it despite the pump being out of commission.

So I can empathize! When the power came back on there was great celebration! Glad you survived the storm and its complications.

So glad to hear the news. Welcome back.
