When the power goes out...



The power came back on at 8:30 p.m. last night, ten hours after going out. We managed to get our car down the hill to the general store this morning and discovered that everyone's power and phone service is still out, but the whole town is using a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. generator which is supplying enough electricity for our needs.

This is very fortunate, because otherwise, we'd be really cut off from the outside world.

There's always more to tell, especially lately, but I'll save it for later. I want to make sure this gets posted now in case the power goes out again, which could happen at any time. Also, the snow has been falling heavily off and on since noon, and our satellite internet goes out when the snow is particularly dense.


  1. I very, very much enjoyed reading this post!!!! The typewriter reminded me of my grandmother's.

    I am laying in bed right now sipping on an apple martini...yummy! HoneyBunny is at my side and the incense is burning. It's times like this that I am thankful to be alive. :)
