I’ll have it black

March 13th, 2012 by Jan

Woke this morning and the digital clock was flashing, which is good news. It means the power is on. It also means that at some point during the night we lost the power again. I don’t know when or for how long.

What I do know is that the 15 hour outage yesterday wasn’t horrible. We’ve had longer blackouts in the past, and I was warm enough with a nice fire going, no big trees came down around me or the house and I used the unexpected and unplugged time to read and nap. There was no harm — no foul.

So, as this new day breaks and we all get back to routine and ritual — I discover the biggest causality from yesterdays problems…

Cream for coffee goes stinky bad without refrigeration. Oh, the problems I endure! Sigh….

    heather usually keeps a can of condensed milk around for just such an emergency…although we’ve gotten pretty slack with the new sub station.

    Of course, just typing that should guarantee our electricity going away.
