I am holed up in a motel a couple miles from my house. Our power went out at 2pm yesterday, during a ferocious storm and isn't due to be fixed until sometime Friday. Normally I would have lit a million candles and stayed put at home. But with cats roaming the house that can get tricky if not downright dangerous. So I decided not to rough it or risk it. And I am monitoring the situation there, but still enjoying those creature comforts we are all so used to here at the motel. The camping lanterns at home were quaint but you can't beat the light, tv or computer access here. Because only three families are affected on our street, we do not have the power company's undivided attention. So they are doing what they have to do, elsewhere first. This is frustrating to be sure. Not to mention the fact, we're going to lose everything in our refrigerator and freezer. And it will be costly to replace. So I will post again when I can. Say a prayer we get restoration soon. Thanks.
