Very hot and oppressive today. Here it is July 4 and I have seen enough fireworks for a lifetime. Last night a thunderstorm came through and knocked out the electricity so we were without any electric until this morning. At midnight we were on our way to Meadville to get gas for the generator. Our son and his family live next door. They are on REA and we are on enelec. Trees were down all over the road and one fell on the telephone line. Electric was out clear into Meadville. Thank God we did have a generator because it looks like our son and his family may be without electric for at least two more days. Went to my sil today and had a nice time, but was glad to get back home to our air condtioned house. Phone lines were all messed up. Sil still insists I called her last night because our name called up on their caller id. I DID NOT CALL HER. Anyhow the low tonight is going to be 77°. And no relief in sight until at least Friday. In the meantime some sugar free jello with fruit and cool whip sounds good to me.
