Monday - Excitment at the House Today
We have lived in our house for nearly 37 years. In all those years the electricity hasn't been off, except maybe 6 times. We have a great power company. But today just as I was rebooting the computer I heard a very loud explosion and the power went off. Sounded like a transformer blew. I walked up the road and saw the problem. The pole that carries power down our road was burning, and the 7000 volt line was just hanging there. The flower girls mom called the power company, they said they'd get right on it. We don't have cell phones. For me, no power means no telephone , and everything out. That means no computer, no heat, no coffee. WHAT! NO COFFEE. No way. Back yard grill to the rescue. Had coffee, but it tasted like outdoor grill. Egads, that meant out to eat too. Power came back on just a few minutes ago. Other than that a decent day. What am I saying, it was a crappy day. Snow, sleet, 33 degrees windy. And I got absolutely nothing done. Unless you want to count 3/4 of a James Patterson book read.
