We are finally home, a full six days after our weather-related ordeal began. We drove down from Wilmington, Delaware during Sophia’s afternoon nap. Our home was thankfully cooled and the fridge didn’t smell (I keep a box of baking soda there always). I threw everything out, washed the fridge and ran to the grocery store. The lights were still flickering on and off, so I didn’t exactly go crazy at the supermarket.
It turns out that the scary storm was a derecho. It was so severe in fact, that it now has its very own wikipedia page. The weekend is thankfully around the corner and I am looking forward to some serious lounging and relaxation (as much as is possible with an almost 9-month old). There will of course (electricity permitting) be serious cooking too. Stay tuned for some more culinary adventures.
