Today I am grateful for electricity. We had a power outage last night. The power was off for over 4 hours. Everything on my to do list for last night needed electricity. Everything. I had sewing to do. I had ironing to do. I had baking to do. We don't run our A/C unless it gets really hot. Our house stays comfortable with just our ceiling fan most of the time. But yesterday it was hot - over 100. It had been over 100 on Friday also. By the time the power came back on close to 11 last night our house was over 90. I tried to work on the computer - no Internet because the modem needs electricity. It got dark, I tried to read by flashlight. I am not sure what people did when they couldn't sleep before we became so dependent on electricity, but I didn't figure it out last night. I am very grateful we had power today. I sewed, I ironed, I baked, we ran our A/C. It was good.
