We haven't had power since midnight Thursday. That means no power all day and night Friday. All day and night Saturday. All day and night Sunday. No Power. No heat. No nothing. No lights to find anything or to even get dressed by. I've read three books, have spent about five hours in my car watching a movie via car battery, have spent close to $100.00 on food since everything in the fridge had to be thrown away and I don't have a way to cook anything - plus it's not easy to cook and eat in the dark. Even if I could afford a hotel, they are all booked. The Malls are packed with people that don't have power, gas stations have long lines. I went to five different stores on Sat. trying to find D batteries with no luck. I can't sleep for shit since it's so cold.
Governor Gregoire has declared a state of emergency but I have no idea what that means to individual people. I'm guessing that she has power and stupid Mayor of Seattle Greg Nichols has power. All the shopping malls and places where you have to spend money have power.
I'm sick of this but this is a wake-up call for me. Have extra gas, batteries, and non-perishable food. Have a way to charge your cell phone, and a battery operated radio.
