Yesterday we had a hum-dinger wind a blowin' most of the day. Things started out bright and sunny in the morning, but as the day progressed, it got more windy. The power went out in early afternoon, so no hope of catching up on blog reading! And, I must make mention that the power outage most likely happened because I defrosted the freezer (no extra ice to keep things frozen) and because of the new hot water heater installation....(kind of like washing your car makes it rain outside???) I have Consumers Energy on my cell phone contacts list, so I dialed them up, and waited. And waited.
About 3 hrs later, the power came back on, but Mr. Wonderful had phoned, asking me to meet him for dinner. How could I refuse Pizza??? MmmmmMMMMM! We returned home about 8pm, and.....NO POWER! So, I dialed up Consumers once again, and of course, there is no updates on when power would be restored. No phone. No lights. No water. We spent the rest of the evening reading our chosen magazines by flashlight, glad we had eaten dinner out! For entertainments sake, I phoned Mom on my cell - she gets rattled when Caller ID does not say who is on the other end of the call, but she put on her "Big Girl Panties" and answered my call anyways - Yeah MOM! We had a nice little chat, and decided to hit the hay at 10pm. The power came back on at around 1:00 am. So today, it's back to normal chores as usual!
Back to FULL POWER!
