Out of Order

Due to the hurricane-like storm system that passed over our area on Friday, over half a million people in the great state of WV are now without power.  I am one of the half-million, and I am fairly certain I am producing enough body heat for all the rest of them.

We have a generator, but have to conserve energy, so I will not be doing any lengthy posts.  My updates are done by phone, and that is far too tedious for an actual post.

Assuming I don’t murder everyone in my home and end up in a mental facility, hopefully I will be back with you around the end of the week.  If you are also without power, you are in my prayers, and all joking aside, I’m glad everyone is okay and I’m sure this will make me appreciate the luxury we all enjoy every day.

I’ll just keep telling myself that.

    Get a dish towel wet and wear it around your neck like a scarf. It will help with the heat! Hang in there, I hope you get your power back on soon.

    We have this weird little clay-like ice pack I have been wearing on my neck. But the dish towel thing sounds good.

    Oh honey. I would much rather it go out in the middle of winter. You can save your food by just sticking it outside. You can burn wood or use kerosine stoves. You can sit under a blanket…..on and on I could go.

    I may have mentioned this, but I hate the heat.
