Went to look for a new refrigerator today. Very hard to find an 18 cubic ft. with an ice cube maker and a meat drawer. Most of them are those big double door giants. We finally went to Best Buy and found one. They are going to deliver on this Friday. Yeah!!

I had a storm roll in And now I am sitting here In the semi dark. I don't see any reason why the power would have gone out. I suppose I ought to call the electric company And see if they have an estimate

Whew, power' back on. It was a line down. It came on when I was eating dinner, which was last night's leftovers. I warmed things back up on the grill while contemplating getting a generator going. Glad I didn't bother.

We had a power out yesterday, took us longer to get everything turned back on than the power was off.

Cleaning up the leftovers in the fridge...

Yeah, I thought I was good to go after getting the clocks back on and then I had to reset the router and modem...

I love this. Cooking facilities outside! (Glad you didn't starve Pac.)

(You have a generator?) Is this a normal thing?

(Did I mention I was nosy?)

I have to go to bed now. (it's desperately late in the UK)

But I would love to know the answers to these questions!

Relaxing, getting caught up on DC, waiting for "Under the dome" to come on T.V

It's not uncommon to have a generator.

Sure is. Anytime there is a storm coming, the big box stores like Home Depot can't keep generators on the shelves. They are sold out even before the storm arrives.
