And so, the power returns. Sometime last night, or this morning. Despite their many promises, there was no call from Duke Energy. We were calling them late last night, after midnight, and this morning and no one knew anything, except that someone had been dispatched to my house. I was the only one in the neighborhood, they said. Of course, I’m pretty sure that the people who answer the phones there have very little ability to get an assessment about what is happening outside their office. It’s not their fault. They were kind, apologetic, really trying hard to get answers for us.
We took off this morning for Harbor Freight to see if they had a generator in stock. They were selling the last one as we walked in the door. Then we headed to my house and when I walked in I gasped! A light was ON, and the house was cool. I was so happy. I love it at Dan’s, but it’s nice to be able to come home. Really nice. So after we straightened up a little around my house, we headed back to his, to get the stuff out of the refrigerator and the freezer that we were keeping to bring to my house.
We ordered a nice generator while we were at his house. One that will run my whole house. So happy, I won’t have to go through this again! It was his mother’s thank you gift for taking care of her and Dan’s brother during the storm. So that’s awesome. His family is good people!
He’s on his way here, and I think tonight will be Chinese food delivered. We are both pretty wasted, and we were up very late last night. So life is getting back to normal. Couldn’t be happier.
Love and light.
