Came home after work...power still out.
So I headed over to Panera to eat and chill and blog. Eating part was great...turns out my neighbor is the manager and I got a free dinner...woohoo! The Panera Wi-Fi didn't work so I decided not to stress...something I've learned well from the last 3 hurricanes...and headed home resigned to a sticky, humid night sitting on the patio gazing at the moon above and the lake behind my house.
As I came around the corner into my development, I noticed light after light on...inside the houses! POWER! The closer I got to my house the more I told myself not to get my hopes up. But when I saw the lights on in MY house, well, I lost it!
Talk about gratitude!!
Electricity = A/C+working fridge+working garbage disposal+HOT WATER = someone who is beyond thrilled and incredibly thankful.
Ever since we lost power early Sunday am (1:34 to be exact) I kept telling myself how easy we have it compared to the people in Haiti...or Stuart...or Hutchinson Island...and Alabama from Hurricane Ivan. Not to sound Pollyannish, but we've got it oh-so-easy.
Come 30 November, I propose FL have a party to end all parties in celebrating the end of hurricane season. Do I hear a second???
