Some of the yard things are not where they are supposed to do either, MOL!Our yard is bestrewn with twigs, branches and other messy things. The roofing material once again came off the neighbors lean to car-port. We have a tree snag (dead tree), that is leaning heavily towards the shed, and it needs to be removed...unfur the younger will be home for spring break next week so he is going to deal with that we hope...and no he won't be allowed out of that work cause the wind did not take it down for him, MOL! Thankfurly, else we would no longer have a shed...well pawppy wouldn't, MOL!
All of a sudden the power failed. Shucks. The map showed that we were right in the center of that particular outage, and our state was spotted with them like large polka dots. OMC:(
Then the internet conked out too. So now we were out of touch with all of our furends.
Well, we *do*have a generator, so we had power in our own little world right away, it comes on all by itself when needed and it serves the whole house. Hooray. So our den was like a beacon in our village...wowee was it evfur dark outside. We could detect pinpoints of light on the highway behind our property. They still had power, it was interesting to see how that was like a border to the powered and unpowered residences, MOL!
And pawppy enabled his smat phone to connect to the internet...and voila! We could reach out to all our furneds once again. Thanks pawppy, we are not in the dark and we can still have kitty fun times:)
Well, Saturday morning when the big light came on (sun) the crews did too, and they must have found our trouble spot easily cause our power - the real deal - was fixed and resumed at about 10am. We were powerless for about 14 hours. But thanks so much power fixing crews, you did great work and we thank you with all our hearts! We hope no more trees came down taking the wires with them...you know last summer and fall, there were tree crews out around here, taking down dangerous limbs,and trimming trees around power lines...must not have taken down the right ones, cause we still had tons of outages...our county was the worst hit in our state, OMC!
We do not think our neighbors liked the dark too much, cause they got into their cars and drove off into the dark, piercing through the darkness with the headlights on their vehicles.
So...now we have some 'taken in the darkest evening of our winter thus far' selfies to share with you.
It is good to snuggle on these wild wind whipping; tree crashing; trash bin keel-overs; powerless dark nights!
Meowmy says she loves how Minko is 'holding' Pipo's paw in the furst picture,so sweet and comforting...
Minko tried a closeup selfie in the dim lamplight:
Pipo got his purrty good the first time:)
