The wind is still blowing............ but the skies look so much calmer now. Yesterday around 2 p.m. a part of a tree came down on our electric wires and we were without electricity. I called in to Consumer Energy to let them know.
About an hour later a man came to look things over. He left again. Later (after dark) a truck with 2 men came to fix the problem. They found out they did not have the wire they needed. So they left again and came back an hour later with the right equipment to fix the problem. So at 9:30 we had electric again. (I had to smile - wouldn't you think they would bring wire with them? That was the problem.) Oh well, what do I know!
We went out for dinner; then came home and lite the candles and kerosene lamp and played "little house on the prairie" until we had lights again. I had a good mystery book to read so it didn't bother me we had no TV or radio to listen too. However, I would not want to live without electricity for very long.
