3:30pm - POWER
It is so nice to not have to carry a light everywhere in the house. To not wake up sweaty and hot. To have lights in the bathroom when I shower. To have a very clean frig/freezer!!
We spent 45 minutes cleaning the frig/freezer, tossing everything that needed to be gone and putting back those things we had in the ice chests. We lost less than most because our stand-alone freezer stayed cold but we are planning to eat out of that for the next month.
We always had water and hot water because that part of the house is not controlled by electricity but it was a long 74 hours. Friends still do not have power.
Our only hang-up now is no cell service inside the house. To make a call we have to go to the back yard (which still has small branches, we dealt with the big ones) or the driveway. I go to local places that I can use my hotspot to get on line. Even the hotspot does not work at home!!!
I very much appreciate my modern life!!
