Dear Friends: Last night sleep was elusive as I listened to the wind howling and the trees creaking. One would have thought a freight train was charging up the lake alongside our house. Themes for today's blog were spinning in time with the branches hitting the shingles. I was up before dawn, finally admitting that sweet dreams were not to be had. It took me a few moments after padding into the bathroom and touching the light switch to realize there was no power. Nothing. Nada.
As I have mentioned before, no power means no water, no lights, no refrigeration, no toilet flushing, no coffee pot, no heat and NO INTERNET. With no connection comes no posting of today's blog.
As you are reading this now, it is obvious the power has been reinstated. It is going on 5 pm so many of you have probably given up on today's musings. I thank you for checking in and will keep my fingers crossed that there aren't many more times this happens.
Now if I could only remember the multitude of ideas I had at 4 am for my entries here I'd be set for weeks to come. Best to you all. Cassy (who is finally taking off sweater number three and four)
