Ok I can understand a couple of hours. We did have some pretty strong winds. But come on people 24 hours at the most. I cannot believe how dependent we are on ELECTRICITY!!
I just don’t think it was fair to loose my own Blogging War over the weather. Can I still Be in it if I post twice today?? LOL
I am seriously having withdrawls from the current of electrical things in my house. I know that reading books was fun. And playing indoor games. And actually being able to cook (thank you gas stove). But man it was a very exhaustive two days. Then the power went on but very weakly. Three hours later it was out again. UHHHG! Then it came on full boar. I am anxious it will go out again. All the laundry that has been hanging out for two days is now being done at 9:50 pm. It is kinda fun having the family all be together as you move from upstairs to down stairs in the dark.
It is just an errie thing to watch the Golden Arches not even have power by the freeway. It was so dark we all saw so clearly the stars that were out through the patches of grey-blue clouds. It was a wierd sight pulling into our neighborhood with all these candles burning in the windows.
Folks we live in California for goodness sakes I thought that poweroutages like this only happened to "other" people. Like those in that place I heard of on "All things considered" in New York state where it gets so cold your car doesn’t start. Not sunny Cali-forn-IA. Maybe I need to take a second look at that one film about Global Warming …. what was it called….. the one with that guy…. oh yeah "Happy Feet". Maybe I can then fit into my mostly lefty loving liberal neighborhood.
So I would like to add somethings to the list in my last post….
1. Power for all those with children and Senior Citizens.
