Bring It On

Is that all you’ve got? The Observer will be ready for the next one. Bring it on. I dare you.generator_jd3500p_1

Seriously. Home again.

Lights, heat, water, TV, the Internet. No taking advantage of in-laws, generous as they were.

For most of us it could have been much worse. Some still without power. We hope it returns soon. For others, it was the unbelievable worst, and we extend our condolences to them.

Losing all the conveniences twice in five months is good reason to be prepared. Learn the lessons, take the necessary steps to minimize the discomfort, inconvenience and dangers the next time around.

Give thanks, and take nothing for granted.

    Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Hopefully you have a nice, relevant name picked out for your new bundle of joy. Our generator is getting used by friends who are still without power. Kerosene heater out on loan also. Mother, brother and family all back home and with electricity. A nice new look for Card Game, where essential appliances trump two record setting performances by Angel McCoughtry. Just a sign of the times. Let’s hope we don’t have to use these auxillary sources of power for a very long time again.
