Bear with me

I'm going to complain here for a moment. Last week we had a freak 15 minute thunder/lightning/wind storm that wreaked havoc on our town. Initially 43,000 households lost power. By the next morning all but 18,000 had their power back on, by day four we must have been one of a very small number, but perhaps because our street name starts with a W we were one of the last to get power again. Not only were those four days completely hot, humid and miserable, we also lost most of the food in our fridge and freezer.

Now a few days have passed and we have a moth infestation in our pantry which is spreading to the rest of our house, the timing of this moth infestation leads us to the sure knowledge that it is a result of having our windows open 24/7 during the loss of power. So not only did we lose all of the food in our fridge and freezer, I just had the joy of throwing out any food that had been opened in our pantry, because even if it wasn't infested with moth eggs, the small chance that it was meant that none of us would have the stomach to even chance it.

Not looking forward to the grocery bill at the end of this month.

Complaining over. Proceed.
