I had checked AccuWeather before going to bed and it mentioned that we were headed into a storm around 3:00 AM in the morning.
I did hear a bit of it during the night and when I awakened to go to the bathroom in the early hours, quickly realized that the electricity wasn’t on. I took Stewie for a walk and spoke to a neighbor who said that it was only our side of the street and east. I saw that a side street was cordoned off and that they were working on the issue at hand. Supposedly, we are supposed to be back in business by 11:00 AM or so. Good thing I don’t have a morning Zoom on Fridays in the summer.
The din of the generators is almost overwhelming as we sit on the patio. It is 9:53 and the noise stopped and I turned my head toward the pond and saw that the waterfall had started up. Good thing for that as the generator we own is not in our possession but rather a hostage in a divorcing situation.
The heat is ramping up and I must remember to reset the damn thermostat we have as it will have returned to the 1960s (would you believe) and the daily routine of raising and lowering the temperature will be totally off. Just to be careful, I will do that right now, before I forget.
Okay, done. I have already picked up a lot of twigs on the lawn, Mary Kay has as well. I am thinking that the ground is dry enough that I can use our battery powered blower and clean off the patio. The harsh winds blew all the excess materials from the locust and maple trees and rather than have Stewart lie in it and bring it in the house with his fur, I would like to deal with it. The harsh winds knocked down my grapefruit tree that is almost a meter in height. Speaking of Stewart, he has collapsed on the living room floor, victim of our almost three mile walk. For the first time in his life I am seeing signs of aging.
It is to be in the 90s today. I have an appointment for an adjustment at the chiropractor’s and well, the rest of the day, I am hoping to chill. Let’s see how that goes…
