This morning in an attempt at thrift, I shut up my house and turned off the AC, wondering how hot the house could possibly get in one day. When I got home from work, I was surprised that the garage door didn't open when I clicked the little opener in my car. I clicked again. And Again. And then my neighbor told me that the power was out. hmmmmm.
The internal temperature of my house was 86º, and I had no way to cool it with fans or AC. So I went outside and watered my plants. And one of the other neighbors from the OTHER side of the street (with power) brought me a plate of scampi. It was quite delicious.
Oh, F... It just went off again. So much for that lovely fan overhead. And all those clocks I painstakingly reset.
I better post this right quick while it is back on... Say a prayer for power.
