I do not have the power. Seriously, no power at my house. Half my block has it, but the rest of us continue to live in the dark. I really cannot complain as we are lucky enough to have a gas stove to heat the house.
I can still access the internet on my phone, although sans wifi, so it is not great since I have terrible reception at home. For now my awesome and amazing local coffee shop, Jack and the Bean Shop, is kind enough to let me drink inexpensive, yummy drip coffee and use their wifi.
The kids are in school and I’m sitting here, warm and cozy, able to catch up on all the wowiwebbing I can in the short few hours available to me.
So, thank you to local businesses willing to let people “hang out” in your facilities, and for all the workers who come in (with or without power at home), to make sure the rest of can have a warm, safe place to be while Avista, Modern, and Vera all work to restore power.
Thanks to the utility companies who continue to work day and night to restore power to the county! Stay safe. We know your job is not easy or particularly pleasant, but we appreciate you spending the longs hours out in the cold to help the rest of us be safe, warm, and often pampered with all our modern conveniences.
The ones I miss most are my fridge, stove, warm water, and wifi. I look forward to the day I can take a hot shower, make a warm bite to eat, and sit in my own comfy home to write these special blog posts. haha
I’ve got so much to be thankful for. Count your blessings. Name them one by one. You’ll be surprised to see what you truly have to be thankful for in this life. The small stuff all adds up.
