My street’s blocked off to traffic. We have no electricity. I’m running my laptop on dwindling battery juice (stupid, stupid, stupid: should have charged batteries). Phone lines do work, but phones don’t because they’re electric. Freezer thawing. Cosmo confused. Lack of coffee critical. Supposed to go to Alaska tonight but flights we’re cancelled. May leave tomorrow. Lowry’s worried about Vermont piece. Chaos, confusion. I’ll be in touch. Keep hope alive. Don’t eat wooden nickles (or metal ones either).
