Do you have that song stuck in your head now??
Yes, the Great Dark Cold Depression of 2007 is over (for now). Driving home from work yesterday, I noticed that the Fiesta Mart on the highway had electricity. Then I noticed a porch light on a house was on. Then I saw another house with lights, then another and another. Could it be? I thought that even if my house didn’t have power yet, at least they were close. Another day or two perhaps and then we would be back on.
As I got closer and closer to my street, more and more lights could be seen. Then I turned down my road and…
Lo and Behold! There were lights!!!! Lots of lights!!!! From my driveway, I could see my Christmas tree lights in the window (we forgot to unplug them before the power went out)!
Insert Angel chorus here HALLELUJAH!!!
walked skipped into the house and the burst of warm air hit my face and I nearly fell over from pure joy! I ran around the house flipping every light switch I could find (and them promptly flipped them back off), I turned on the TV, the radio and the computer just to make sure everything was really on. Then I sunk down into my couch and just enjoyed the privilege of having electricity coursing through my home. Aaahhhhh. Thank You God for modern technology!
So now I am happy and warm and showered and all is well – until tonight when the snow storm hits. Hopefully, it won’t knock out the power again.
Please God Please don’t let it knock out the power again!!
