How did this happen?
Sunday evening around 6:30 we had a bad storm come through our area. We had been with family at Upper Silver Lake all afternoon and when we were coming home we saw several trees and tree limbs down along the highway. In fact, it took us a while to get home because we would have to wait for the road to be cleared. When we got to our road there was a firetruck and flashers going. A large tree had become uprooted and had fallen on the electrical wires. The tree was burning. Later on Consumers came to cut the wires. We, of course, were without electricity through the night. Electric came back on at 12 noon today.
We take all our comforts for granted (electricity, air-conditioning, water, able to flush our toilets, etc....) and it isn't until we are without them that we appreciate what we have. Maybe that is why God sends us these storms to remind us of our blessings, ya think?
