The first storm of the season is usually the one remembered the easiest. How true for our first storm of the “winter” that arrived on Oct 22.
It was such a beautiful morning as the big clouds in the south were confronted with even bigger darker clouds from the north. I was busily shooting pictures of the amazing sunrise,which was delayed because of the clouds. I would take a few, put them on the computer, then see how it was even better, and take a few more.
As I was just about to send some out to share with Steve, I heard a noise out back. Looking out, it seemed that the tree at the side of the driveway was lower than it should be. I came back to the computer, but it was off. Oh no, no power.
Now 2 and a half days later, after many calls to power companies, electric service companies, handymen, and landlords, we have power again. What a difference those electrons make! Steve tended to use all the dark time to sleep, but I wasn’t sleepy, and had to find things to do that didn’t require power. It was interesting, but I found that I’m used to having power and mostly need it to do my computer stuff.
Time to catch up to the rest of the world. Here are the pictures I was going to send to Steve.
And one of the tree in the driveway.
