Is the real world still in place?
This post is brought to you by determination, grit, and a 5000 watt generator.
Since I last posted, we went from this...
We have been on around-the-clock gas-up-the-generator-every-two-hours shifts to keep the puppies warm and alive.
The power company got an earful this morning, due to the fact that their crew made a small repair yesterday afternoon at the end of the road, then apparently went home, leaving the majority of the damage untouched. They could give us no indication as to just how much longer we will have to wait, but from our appraisal of the damage, it might be quite a while. Big sigh.
It has been nearly two days of interrupted sleep, dirty bodies, dirty dishes, and general inconvenience. We are all learning to be very grateful for the blessing of electricity.
The romance and excitement of being snowed in and having the power go out was immediately erased by the stress and concern of keeping those puppies warm and alive. We are more than ready for normalcy to return.
And I can't stop thinking about how good a hot shower is going to feel.
