Power - we all want power! But we don't truly appreciate it till it gets turned off.
A storm came through Friday, the weather forecasters completely underplayed it for our area. First the snow was much heavier, in all senses of the word, more of it and heavy wet snow turning to ice.
Then we had very high winds, they got that right, but with the snow, lots of trees, light poles, electricity poles went down. The storm started in our area on Friday at about 11.00 am. At 2.00 pm we lost power.
Luckily we have a wood stove, so we are able to keep the house warm. And we thought it would not take long to get our power back. I was out Saturday showing homes, luckily only one of them was without power. There was a beautiful sunset following the storm on Saturday night.
We were wrong about getting our power back though. Saturday night we went out for dinner at TJ's in Paoli to get something hot, and to recharge, thank you very much for letting us plug in by the hostess stand; while we are sitting there waiting for our dinner we learnt our power won't be back till Tuesday midnight, that is the estimate. So, whilst dinner was very good, we felt a little shocked.
Today I am in the office charging phones, tablets, laptops, back up batteries. That is after a hot shower at my gym. Then to the local bagel place for a hot coffee and a breakfast bagel sandwich.
The snow has gone, but the effects are lingering. You don't realize just how dependant you are on power. No internet, no way to recharge your phones, laptops, or tablets. No light, other than candles and some LED emergency lights we have. Romantic,yes, for a while, but I want my power back so I can read Active Rain, post, stay in touch with clients, search the internet, read my Kindle app on my tablet and watch Netflix if I want.
Guess, I will be in the gym and theoffice a little more this week. Don't worry we are still working, setting appointments, etc. via my phone.
