If you’re wondering where I’ve been for the past few days…
After a largely sleepless night, I woke up to this:
Times three. And no power. Now, at first I was thinking, “I can deal with this.” But then, it was 5 pm. And darkness fell over the land. So I lit a few dinky candles. But it was still freezing. And hard to see. And I showered in the dark. Which is something I would rather not do again.
36 hours later, I tentatively pressed the light switch, thinking please let there be light:
AND THERE WAS LIGHT!!!
It was glorious, I tell you. I could finally open my garage, and drive away into the sunrise. I had internet and working kitchen utilities. Life was good.
To everyone who is still without power, I really hope you can get it back soon. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way so that all the positivity lights up your homes!
(That is how it works, right?)
