Woke up this morning to no power in the house.  Went out to get the paper.  It was saturated, right through the double bag.  Went to call Star Tribune to get a new paper.  Phone doesn’t work without electricity.  I KNEW THAT!  Got cell phone and called.

Now what can I do?  I headed towards the computer before I caught myself.  Nooooo, no computer.  Thought about throwing in a load of clothes.  That won’t work either.  Can’t make a cup of coffee.  Kinda dark in the house, and kept trying to turn on lights that were powerless.

I kept feeling silly, trying to turn on things that of course won’t turn on. Thought about my iPod, which I found out needed a charge.  Couldn’t even plug it in.  Roamed around the house.  Sewing was out of the question too, and not bright enough in the house to cut anything out.  Maybe a treadle machine isn’t such a bad idea?

I dug a couple of 2008 quilting magazines out of the recycling and read for a spell.  By the time we got home from church, the power was back up and life as I know it was back to normal.  Our outage was probably only 5-6 hours.  I can’t imagine going without power for a week.  (And thank goodness for air conditioning today!!!  hot-hot-hot)

  1. Reminds me of the time my friend dug out an old fan to plug in when she was in the middle of a power failure. Ooops…we are such creatures of habit. Another friend said she could live without her microwave, vacuum, garbage disposal, hair blower, small kitchen appliances, but never could make it without her washing machine. She was the mother of six…. Occasionally I remember when we all lived without a.c. but don’t think I could live without our power grid. Glad you’re up and running.
