No Power this a.m.

Saturday, January 04, 2014

One doesn't really understand and realize how much you depend on electricity until there is a power outage. When we got up this a.m., we had no power. Hubby turned on the generator to make us coffee.....okay, so this wasn't bad so far. Do you know how many times you go into a room or closet and flip the switch for light? I did that so many times and always laughed when the light didn't come on. We did have to use the generator to keep our 2 refrigerators and big freezer at a good temp. We had not problem with that. We called our neighbor to see if she wanted coffee and she came over and we had a nice chat. We turned on the fireplace for some heat. Luckily our sun room was nice and warm and we were thankful the sun was out and not a cloudy day. I told Hubby and he agreed it wouldn't be so bad until power was back. Just think if we lived a long ago when no one had power....we could do this. The kitchen fridge freezer got back to "0" and Hubby went over to unplug it from the generator and lo and behold......the power came back on. We are so fortunate for everyday things we don't even have to think about. It wasn't bad at all. Remember to count your blessings each day and to be thankful each day for what you have. Hope all of you have a great day.
