Just another day in the neighborhood...

I need a pat on the back.

The Internet connection is bad enough when it's good and now the power here is having problems...it's the wiring plus the high winds. Yesterday a transformer blew and there was no power most of the day and into the night in the neighborhood. When the power came back on, it messed with some switch, which lessens the power to the refrigerator. It happened before. The owner needs new wiring as it wasn't done right in the first place, is the general consensus. I am without refrigeration. Day 2 and counting.

To top it all off, the winds here are incredible. That's what caused the original outage. It comes in waves and you can literally lean into the wind. I guess the gusts are about 30-40 mph.

You be the judge:





I hope today's issue was met with your approval as it was done under duress!!! lol

Chris Christie Withheld Emails On Bridgegate!
Attorneys for a former Christie appointee who is battling criminal charges over the incident said in a court filing on Wednesday that they had "newly discovered" that the governor's office had withheld "critical documents" originating from the days around the lane closures in September 2013 that gridlocked the town of Fort Lee. Claims made by Christie's lawyers for why these documents should be kept secret do not "pass the red face test", according to the filing. Among the documents are emails between Christie's press secretary Michael Drewniak and David Wildstein, a state official who has pleaded guilty to conspiracy, which were withheld on the basis of attorney-client privilege despite neither man being an attorney. A spokesman for Christie did not respond to a request for comment.
