Without power

Yesterday a eucalyptus tree fell over and ran into power lines in front of my mobile home park. There was a loud crash, a small fire, and the power went out for the entire park. The fire dept and PG&E were there in minutes, and the fire was soon put out, but it took several hours for PG&E to cut down the tree and repair the damage. Our power was out until about 1:00 a.m. last night.

I realized how useless I am without electricity! I could cook - gas stove - and I could read as long as I had light. I used a couple of candles and read a little but it was too difficult. I did go out in the afternoon, went to do some errands. Paul went out at night, perhaps to get online (the router and modem need electricity). My laptop lasted a bit on battery power, then closed down without warning in the middle of sims. I ended up going to bed soon after eight.

I was wakened by the sound of the automatic cat litter box combing through the litter. Power back on! I didn't get up then. I had my kitties in bed with me, after all, and we were comfy.
