Stormy Day

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.
