Early this morning there was a rip-snorting-thunder-cracking storm
It sounded like it was right over our house
About 7 am.
We kept our lights
Karen lost hers so called, "can I come over - - with the cats?"
Well, yes - otherwise we would have the ASPCA on our doorstep.
We kept our lights - all through the day.
We were lulled into a false sense of security.
4:30PM Click - "they are gone."
And so they were - - are.
I made a cold supper - tuna salad with sliced tomatoes that was really g 0 0 d.
Natural light kept us going for a while
Then we brought the lanterns back out,
Listened to a scratchy radio
Played Dominos -
Jim and Karen kept winning so, as a mature adult, I quit playing.
We called PEPCO
They say they will restore power to all by
And now I am using up the battery in my Mac.
