Sitting In The Dark With A Good Report From The Doctor
March 8, 2017 3:20pm CST
I wen to the Doctor for follow up on my Bronchitis diagnosis and no sooner did I sit down than I received an alert that my power went out. The Doctor told me I was improving and encouraged me to take the steroids to keep it going. So on th Bronchitis 'I'm golden'. It is no great feat that after a longer time than I spent in the Doctor's office I was able to get some news on the power outage. I reported our residence as without power once I got to a live person and they informed me that the estimated time for power to be restored was Mach 11 at noon. They were kind enough to say they don't really expect it to be that long but then they have other problems. When I attempted to get information from their website it was not working well. Their phone system was also a bit 'messed up'. In calling them I ended up in a 'loop' where I was kicked back to the beginning of their process ( several times) before I finally was able to talk to a live person. I think she was as distressed as anyone (Poor Girl). SO I am sitting here in the dark using up some battery to write this post. I'll be back as soon as I can. How is your day going?

@JudyEv It will be at least 7 hours as that is what it will be in under 20 minutes. Probably a lot longer as there is a tree down that appears to have taken out our supply line (which feeds about 6 houses). They know it's there but haven't started working on it yet. Thousands of people in Michigan are without power due to the high winds today. I have very little battery life left so I turn on the computer for short periods of time for minimal use.

The only good thing about an extended power outage for me is how appreciative I am when it comes back on. We lost power for 5 days after a hurricane a few years ago. The worst thing was losing most everything in our big upright freezer. I tried to cook everything I could on a charcoal grill that I could but, unfortunately, the spaghetti kept falling through.
