Lights out

No, not me. (You wish.)

The power. The power’s out. Has been for hours.

That image up above is a pretty good representation of the County, this November 1. Power went out around midnight and is still out.

Right now, I’m wearing several layers and trying to boil some water on the woodstove, for tea. The dogs think everything is great. Me, not so much.

Outside, power lines down, trees and branches down, and – symbolically, perhaps – my beautiful Canadian flag pole is down, too. The wind snapped it in two and it smashed down onto my truck.

So, be safe, everyone. Last night was supposedly Hallowe’en, and – around here, at least – we got more trick than treat!

    Co-incidence? I think not. A visitation from the ghost of Redneck Ralph, perhaps?

    Hoping that you have insurance! Sounds like you’ll need it. And maybe a generator or 2 day battery system for your fridge and freezer.

    I live rural and we got snow. The following is a quote from a business sign I passed an hour ago. It was from a Garden Centre-I couldnt make this up if I tried….I of course stopped to get a pic of the sign.
