Ah! Fresh and hot outta da oven! :)

So, a funny thing happened the other day.  Well, not funny…more like crazy, freaky, final-destinationish, poop-your-pants scary, like you almost died scary.  We heard about the craziness going on at the gas stations, so we both decided to fill up our cars wherever we could. We stopped at the gas station on the corner of Hope and Woodway.  Near the end of the fill up, there was a series of huge explosions above the gas station.  Electric sparks from the transformer overhead rained down on the gas station and even lit up some oil that was on the ground.  We freaked out and didn’t know what to do. Fire trucks started to show up. I was done getting gas, but Kristien wasn’t. Kristien was yelling to me, telling me to just drive off and meet her at CVS up the street.  But I had a movie image in my head:  a man, speeding off in a car with his dog, never to see his wife again so I waited until she was done at the pump. Kristien threw cash at the gas attendant and sped off behind me squealing her tires in the process.  Even as we write this, we’re still freaked out and think how close we were to something potentially horrific.  Luckily nothing happened and nobody got hurt. :)

Needless to say, we didn’t stick around Springdale to see if we’d get the power back.  We headed to Kristien’s office to set up camp there for the night.  We dropped off our supplies then headed to the first restaurant that we had in mind:  Letizia’s.  If you want a nice thin crust pie, this is definitely the spot to check out on Main Ave. in Norwalk.  Kristien put the order in:  sausage, hot pepper, and onions…an OmNomCT favorite combo.  We got a large antipasto, too, then headed out to get some wine. I mean, look…you need wine after that.
