|MAKING THE BEST OF OUR 42 HOUR POWER OUTAGE|
This is a rather long blog because it covers both Saturday and Sunday.
Friday, Dec 23rd. With a pop, fizzle, and a clunk, our power went out Friday night at 7:20 p.m. And that was that, we were in total darkness with howling winds and blowing snow outside our windows. Minutes later, with a couple flashlights we lit some candles and two oil lamps. Kelly’s cell phone still worked so she called the Power Company for an update. They said power would be restored by 10 p.m. but we highly doubted that. The next update said 1 p.m. on Saturday and then 5 p.m. Saturday. The writing was on the wall, we were in for a long night and maybe even a couple days. We settled in for the long haul. Luckily, we have a gas stove in the sunroom so we had a source of heat. Without power, the fan wouldn’t work but that was okay, it was good enough. And of course, we had the RV outside for backup. Kelly slept in her bed for the night and I stretched out in my sunroom recliner beside the gas stove. Kelly’s sleep was so-so and I slept fine. Pheebs slept on her doggy bed in front of the gas stove beside my chair.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning up and getting ourselves reorganized back to our normally comfortable routines. Music again, the Internet again, TV again, heat again, lights, water, and hot water again, landline phone again etc. and etc. I have more I could say but I’m just too darned tired to even think about saying more. Goodnight……..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz:))

GROANER’S CORNER:((My friend Jim told me that when he asked his wife where she wanted to go on vacation, she said that being married to him was a vacation. When I commented that was a nice thing to say to him, Jim replied, “Well, actually, what she said was I was the ‘last resort.”
People who work out too much are like monsters. Aka the Abdominal Show-man.
