POWER BACK ON, CRABS IN FRIDGE

Power came back on. So I packed up my stuff at the motel and came home. Now I have to go through the refrigerator and take out what spoiled.
 

  This is our anniversary weekend. So before this all happened we ordered half a bushel of steamed crabs to celebrate.
 
 
 Late this afternoon they arrived, from the Eastern Shore in Maryland packed in a big styrofoam box loaded with cold gelpaks. So I have to make room for them in the fridge after I count them and dispose of the bad stuff, ruined from the storm. Want to make sure we weren't shorted. Especially since most of our grocery bill went to the crabs this week, not knowing we were going to have this other expense of having to replace things.  BLAME IT on Mother Nature and her wrath. It could have been so much worse. So we can't complain. You never know when she will strike. At least a taste of home will help us forget. And now we have an anniversary to enjoy!

It's called THE CRAB PLACE. It's online from Maryland. They are shipped from the dock to your door. We tried a couple other places throughout the years but never got the same service so we've stuck with these guys.

Hey, I'm glad to hear that your power has been restored. The crabs arrived with perfect timing!
I hope you'll be able to salvage some things from the refrigerator.
Have a great anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! So glad you're back at home. I waited out Hurricane Sandy at the Howard Johnson's near the office, so this is familiar to me. Enjoy your yummy anniversary dinner.

Happy anniversary!
I am so sorry about the power going out and your fridge stuff going bad. My fridge went out 2 weeks ago and everything in the freezer and fridge had to be thrown out. I just restocked it and cleaned it all out and it was a tad bit annoying and expensive.
Love me some crab!!

It is good to hear you are back home again. With the terrible cost of groceries it's too bad you lost so much. Hope you do have a happy Anniversary though and enjoy those crabs!

Life is just one adventure after another isn't it. Have a wonderful, if somewhat crabby, anniversary. Congratulations.

Happy Anniversary!

Glad the crabs were delivered after your power was restored.

It's a bummer to throw away all that food and replace it. Just glad you are safe.

Oh no, Taryterre, it's no fun to have a power shortage. That's good that you got to go to the hotel. I haven't had crab in such a long time. Crab and lobster is the only fish I will eat.

Happy Anniversary, dear.

Love,

Hope your anniversary was great! Even when we lost food in our refrigerator with a power outage, it did not make me happy at all - - - but it happened after we had a basement wall collapse and the basement flooded so that made it seem not so bad. But a DEFINITE inconvenience in time and money!
