We've Got Power!
In the afternoon, not being such a happy camper any more, I drove over to the power company. (When I called, their message said we were not on the outage list, and I just wasn't
taking any chances of a third day without power!) On the way down the road, I met a neighbor we'd never met in almost three years because she was strolling down the road. That's the power of being without power!
Finally about 9:30 that night, the "new" neighbor called to tell me the power trucks were outside her house at the front end of the road. Herb was already in bed, but I stayed up a little longer and read by my battery-powered head lamp. Suddenly, after 42 hours, the lights came on.
NOW we've got power!
