I stopped by Home Depot on my way to work and this was the scene in the parking lot.
That's a lot of trucks!
Many families have been without power since the New England ice storm on Thursday, including my daughter and her family. They have been staying with us since Friday afternoon, but are hoping to have power back sometime today so that they can go home. At least today's forecast is for warm weather; Saturday was really cold. The power outage has disrupted their holiday plans - they were going to put up their tree this past weekend, decorate the porch - but instead they hung out in the condo. At least we live close enough to help. I feel sorry for the families that have to stay in a shelter.
