Back from the Stone Age

Hello again! I'm back on line after 7 days and 2 hours (but who's counting, LOL) of enforced silence due to a power outage after our terrible storms last Wednesday. We lost our electricity when a tree fell on the power lines five houses up the street from us. The power company just got there to remove it this afternoon.

Candlelight and battery powered radios got a little old. And hoisting the wooden garage door by hand. And living on sandwiches. And bringing in bags of ice for the cooler. Heck, EVERYTHING in the previous week was on my last nerve. But no more of this:

"Oh Frabjous Day, Calloo Callay", to quote Lewis Carroll, I'm back in the 21st century.

Glad your power has been restored. It's amazing how much easier electricity makes our lives.

Yes, I know just how you feel after having spent two weeks camping in my living room in March. Good ol' electricity!!!

So glad to see you're both OK, and in one piece. Hope Molly wasn't too disturbed. We saw the news reports and wondered if you were affected. Welcome back! My oldest friend from school lived in a house called "Slithytoves" and their cat was called "Mimsy".

Wow, an entire week! I'd go nuts. I lost power here in Knox for 30 hours and then another total of 7 hours the next night after it was restored. I have propane lanterns, fortunately, but still, it was truly not my best time ever, and I can't imagine what it would be like with temps in the 90s and high humidity with it, as we're having right now.

A week! Pioneer woman.
