Oh my gosh we had a wind storm last night. The wind kicked up yesterday and it really went crazy.
I live in an area with a lot of very tall cedar trees around and they are not known for hanging on to their branches in a storm. Not only the branches were down but all the dried bits too. They turned the streets brown.
I sent my son out the front door to take down the Welcome Autumn sign on my front door because it was banging and crashing against the door.
The inevitable happened and the power shut down around 2:00 am with a big bang. The streets became very quiet and dark. The wind kept right on blowing and 83,000 homes in the lower mainland and up the coast were without power.
There is a lot to be concerned about when the power goes out. How long before you have a furnace again. The fridge and freezer need to be kept closed. And the most important issue of all…..HOW IS LORI GOING TO HAVE HER MORNING CUP OF COFFEE. SERIOUSLY!!!!HOW?????
Lucky for me we have a gas stove. We had to ignite it with a lighter but we were cooking. I put on a kettle of water and put the coffee filter holder in place on the pot. In no time at all we had our hot morning coffee and all was right in my world.
I live close to where I work and there was no power there either. Although our phones were working we had no access to our computers. Can you believe that people who called into our company were actually angry with us because we couldn’t help them due to a power outage? I know!!!!
LUCKY FOR THEM I HAD ALREADY HAD MY MORNING CUP OF COFFEE.
