Nine hours without power is a long time. Yesterday a huge storm rolled in about 1:00 pm and all power was knocked out. It was a huge outage, not like our neighborhood was the only one affected. Nevertheless, Hayes was in quite a way without TV or computer to occupy his afternoon. I thought I might go mad without access to the e-mail. Odd, isn't it, how the only things I could think of doing involved electricity? When I can't have it, I want it most. This morning we are back in the 21st century. Ahh, fresh coffee and the Today show. Praise the lord.
