Have you every said to yourself, “Self. I wish I had sometime to myself. Extend periods of quiet where I just get to unplug and not be bugged by anyone or anything!”
Be careful what you wish for….
Guess what happens when torrential rains and 70+ mph straight line winds blow through on a quiet morning? This happens.
I do believe that those two pieces of the pole should still be connected.
And if your extra, super-duper lucky, like myself, you not only lose power but your cable/internet/phone line rides out the storm here.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure that in order for my house to have access to the outside world, that still needs to be connected to the pole.
Oh well, I will use this time to get all those little things done that I’m always saying I am going to do but never get around to doing.
Clean up downed tree branches – check
Pull weeds in garden – check
Water yard – Hahahaha
Do laundry – Oops, can’t 🙂
Vacuum – No can do
Clean the Oven – Yeah right, like I’d do that anyway!
I know. I can read that book I checked out from the library.
This is awesome. I’m sitting on the couch in the middle of the day reading!
The house is so quiet. Maybe too quiet. Stop it. Get back to the book.
This book is boring. I know. I’ll just pop online and find something interesting to download.
Crap, No I won’t.
This quiet is just so….. quiet. I mean I think it’s screaming QUIET at me.
Is this really what I’m always nagging about wanting?
So I did what any reasonable adult would do.
I packed up all my beloved, useless electronics and drove to Panera where, for the price of a soda, we enjoyed lights, air conditioning, internet and unlimited refills.
I may have overstayed my welcome, but I left with more than $3.57 worth of soda in our bloated bellies, a newly downloaded Kristin Hannah read, and enough stockpiled ‘juice’ to keep my screens glowing at home, hopefully.
