Luncheon Plates and Disaster Preparations
Our electric finally came on after several spurts and starts. When you lose your electricity you come to appreciate having it even more. You also realize you should prepare for not having it. How can I cook? How can I keep warm or cool? How can I see in the dark? We always have a supply of essentials like canned goods, essentials, and water but we've also stocked up on batteries, lanterns, and brought our camp stove upstairs to cook on if need be.
We are lucky enough to still have the generator we had in Florida but never had it wired up to this house. If we can see our way clear financially we'll try to get that done before the dead of winter. Just as Gary got the refrigerator connected to the generator, the electricity went back on, but you never know how long it might be without and spoiled food would be a tremendous loss and cost. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
