*Update! No sooner than did I drive home from the library did I notice lights on in my neighbor’s window. Yaaaay! Power has been restored! I didn’t think we’d get it back until Thursday night – so happy! I’ve got my heat cranked and am not turning it off until I start to sweat.
Today is Halloween and still no power. Electric company website has updated the estimated time it will be restored from noon today, till 11:00 pm on Thursday.
I have been driving around to charge my cell phone in the car and to find some place to work via Wi-Fi. Panera didn’t have a single available parking space and so I gave up on the neighboring Barnes and Noble.
I am now sitting in the library (amazed that I found a parking spot) only to discover that their Wi-Fi is down and all computer terminals full. So once again, I rely on my trusty 3G iPhone to provide you an update through my WordPress app.
At least it is warm in here. There is a local woman here who is homeless. I’ve seen her in the library before. Sitting here now listening to others talking about being without power I imagine for a brief time, some elements of our world are now like hers.
Stay warm people – each moment I am realizing how much I take for granted. Might be time for me to say a few words of thanks….
