Santa Wears a Yellow Slicker

WE HAVE POWER!!!  Early Thursday morning the trucks rolled in.  The men from Montana in rubber pants and jackets stood out in the pouring rain with generators, cranes and hand tools. An hour later my dishwasher was running, the house was warming up and I had the ability to crimp my hair if I so desired.  Hallelujah!  Merry Christmas to all.  I now have 3 days to get ready for Christmas so posting may be sparse.  Head on over here for a little more of the blackout action.  I’m having a hard time remembering to use actual lights, still a little flashlight happy.  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been a week without power before when I wasn’t camping.

Oh, and they’ve asked us not to use any unnecessary power (including holiday lights) until all the people in the area are up and running.  It’s a bit of a bummer but I’d much rather that everyone was warm for Christmas than that my tree was glowing.  Peace out!
