Er, once i got the rescued stuff back home, i rethought it - the time the power was out was just too long, and at least one thing smelt "iffy", So i wound up throwing everything out, and i'll be off to Trader Joe's for replacements in a little while.
There's really not much sense in taking a chance on getting sick. If it had been colder in the house, i probably wouldn't have worried, but it was warm enough in the house that i hadn't even had the upstairs (where the kitchen is) heat turned on.
Our power company had started off with about 100,000 customers out. So they go with the major outages in the bigger areas and major problems and work their way down. Ours was only the one little pocket of about 200 in the back half of my neighborhood. And it was simple enough to fix it, but it did need a truck taken off something else, or dispatched when one of the bigger problems (like live downed lines, downed poles, tree limbs about to pull down other lines, etc. was taken care of). By the time they got around to us, they had gotten all but 8,000 or so back online.
