self portrait



We finally got power back about an hour ago. Power went out during the wind and lightning of early Saturday morning. We have been without, then for about 32 hours. I ended up going out and buying a DC to AC inverter so that we could run a few little things like Ericka's CPAP (allowing her to get some sleep) but the refrigerator and freezer have not been happy and there will likely be some spoilage. Sigh.

Glad we're back on. Got a call from a neighborhood friend and they are not, however, so maybe my constant calls to the electric company finally had some effect for us. Hope others are back on soon.
