No Power.

There has been a huge storm raging.

Then suddenly. Bang XXXX all the power went out.

We've been without power for  hours and I had an adventure cooking eggs and tomatoes by  candlelight, and making toast over the fire. We finished it off with chocolate and the company of a neighbor who only has electricity, no gas.

Fortunately it's back on again but its a bit scary out here in the studio.. so I think I will retire.

We don't realize how much we rely on electricity.

I need my computers, ipad, ipod and nano…for a start. Lights are an advantage as are my sewing machines, tv's and irons. Oh, then again we need the washing machine and the dryer…and an iron.

I think I could manage without my electric toothbrush, facebook and the phone because I use the cell phone…..Thats about it.

    Pam, I agree. You don’t realize what you take for granted until you don’t have it, even for a few hours. There’s always tomorrow to work in the studio.
    We’ve been pretty lucky for a couple of years; no transformers hit by lightning. I especially hate when it happens during the summer and there’s no AC!!
