An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- We didn’t have any electricity for most of the weekend. Saturday night was cold which made the house cold all day on Sunday. It shouldn’t be so frequent; but we have a multi-day outage at least once a year. The repair capacity of the local utility is almost non-existent.
- I was only kinda able to cut the grass over the weekend since I didn’t have any electricity to edge or blow. So, it turned into a two day chore. I don’t like doing yard work during the week. I’d much rather be doing something fun with my evening.
- I wish that the weather would have been warmer over the weekend (when the power was out). Then I could have replaced the photocell in one of the outdoor fixtures. The light is on the same circuit as the kitchen/garage so it’s a nuisance to fix unless, of course, the power is already out.
- Now that we have electricity and internet, I’ve been researching backup generators. They one I want is kinda expensive. But it would be really nice to have. It was only a few years ago that we spent several days of our summer vacation with no power.
