Rain, Rain, Go Away Already!!!
Whoops, generator decided it needed a vacation too... just 7 hours into our 48 hour power outage. Not cool Generac! :) So it was dark, and the worst part was our garage is detached, and the only way into the garage is via the garage door... which opens with the garage door opener... which is based on the fact you have electricity to the garage... so my vehicle was a prisoner in my own garage.
I can honestly say, because of the generator, I haven't been without power that long in AGES. So I compared myself to a boxcar child. No running water, because our well pump is electric, don't open the refrigerator or freezer for fear of losing precious cold air... I walked 2 1/2 miles for a cup of coffee on Saturday morning... how crazy was that? The bonus was I got to sit and enjoy it while charging my cell phone... with Panera's electricity. As we're bracing for 3 more days of storms, I'm praying for pleasant, soft showers, no wind, and please trees... hang on to your limbs!
The beauty in all of this, it gave me plenty of time to make jewelry! It was 48 hours of un-interrupted bead bliss... kind of like camping, no showers & all! :)
Have a wonderful day and take a moment to enjoy the simple things today. You'll be glad you did!
