We have electricity! Finally! It’s been so long I hardly know what to do with it. I was planning to write a long post about the ice storm and power failure as soon as the electricity came back on but now it’s only a few days until Christmas and I have a few Christmasy things to do as well as getting re-acquainted with some household appliances, in particular the washer and dryer so you still might not see much here until after Christmas. But on the other hand I might have a few minutes to waste now and then so keep checking anyway.
UPDATE: My son, whose electricity came back on several days before ours did, has some useful tips for coping during a power failure and looks on the bright side.
