ELECTRICITY!

pole dancerOh Electricity, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I stood in the driveway at 10:00 pm last night and did my best version of a touchdown dance as the lineman drove away. I wonder if he gets this a lot? 34 hours without electricity makes you want to kiss him smack on the lips. I LOVE YOU MR. ENTERGY GUY! I would have stopped him to lavish him with my love if I did not fear retribution from my neighbors that were still waiting.

      The longest I ever had to go was two weeks. Our entire town was out so it was a little eerie. You forget how much background noise there is until it’s gone.

    The only thing worse than being the only house on the block with the lights on, is having the only house on the block with a functioning toilet. Been there, done that.

    During the 2008 Ice Storm here, my in-laws were without power for a month. They live pretty far out in the country. They were running on generators the entire time, it was pretty crazy. People had signs in their yards that read “30 days without power, Jackson Purchase where are you?” It was eerie.
