What do you do when the power goes out ?
Power went out in much of our state of North Carolina yesterday due to hurricane Michael. We got lots of rain on Thursday and about 2:00 PM it happened. Trees were down on most of the roads near us. It was a trapped feeling knowing trees were across our road above us and below us there was water from a creek out of it's banks.
Yesterday I had walked early in the day and completed most of the chores. Decided it was a good day to read. Near a window there was enough light.
I finished a book I had been reading for weeks! We ate cold sandwiches and
for dinner. No TV but I was OK reading by oil lamp.
Today was going much the same except after
for 30 minutes I decided to venture out to find hot
. Win, win on that one!
After that coffee I felt like doing something and decided you don't really need power for
. After we had washed a few we heard the refrigerator start buzzing and started smiling for we knew the power was back!
What a great feeling!
