Let the snow pile up. Let the wind howl. Let the hurricanes rage, let the blizzards swirl, let the house rattle. Bring on the heat waves, the dark nights, the cold mornings.
We're almost ready.
Our wonderful (and very funny) electrician, Bill, installed the new generator panel last week, and the generator will be delivered in a week or two. I'm a little bit afraid of these things, but after four days without water in the summer, and the threat of no heat in winter, I'm ready to learn how to power up, and Bill promises I am trainable.
We'll be able to get through the outages that have become more frequent, and more prolonged, with a few hours a day of heat, water, and refrigeration. We'll also have some wi-fi, because a girl's got to blog.
Local friends, take note. Our plumbing is your plumbing, our fridge is your fridge, our heat is your heat. At least, it will be, in a couple of weeks.
