Back in the 21st Century-- Electricity!
After 5 and 3/4 days-- we once again have electricity. A week ago today, the October snowstorm hit and trees and tree branches came down everywhere, including on the line that feeds houses on our street. No heat, huddling in the kitchen with gas flames and candles, listening to a crank radio, going to Andy's office or the library for Internet. Amazing.
But-- notice along with candles and unseen gas burners warming us up, I'm reading my Kindle, so we stayed in touch with our century at least a little bit.
