Power Outage -- Monday 9 PM until Tuesday about 4 PM.

Tuesday, May 02, 2017

Oh, my, how we rely on our modern tech thing-a-ma-bobs. What I really missed, though, was water and heat. we had our gas stove so I could cook. I snuggled up in my clothes and comforter this afternoon and just couldn't get warm. The wind and rain has seemed to die down. PTL

I didn't get to sign in last night and go to the 10% challenge thread. I will try to get caught up. I was frustrated today and had a lot of things to get done when the power came back on.

Hope everyone else is fairing well. Have a good night! emoticon

    I remember the days when not having power wasn't such a big deal - NOW I'm not sure how I would get anything done! Glad you're back; try not to let all the things you have to get caught up on overwhelm you.

    This is why we had a standby generator installed. I cannot live without power! It runs everything except one oven and the dishwasher.

    Power is always going out around here! There seems to be no way to prepare for it! We have gas hot water heater, so I can stand over a sink of warm water to do dishes! The weirdest part is, keeping busy! I guess we realize then how much time we spend online! Have a warm night and a good rest! emoticon

    It is amazing how much we relay on elec. We had a storm July 1, 2011 in our county. 80% loss of trees. Our whole county looked different. We are still cleaning. My parent's were w/o elec for 8 days. By day 8 mom was in total melt down crying to the elec company on my phone.

    That is funny. If our power went out today, I would miss the air conditioning. I'm in North Carolina. It is AC time already however today was glorious with low humidity and Temps in the 70s!
