And fortunately, it's over. We have power back. Hallelujah!
I've had my experience for quite some time of "camping"- no electricity, check; inclement weather, check; "wild" animals (a.k.a. my crazy cats), check. Fortunately, we had indoor plumbing and a really good "tent", a.k.a. our house, and a generator.
But we have power now. And live in civilization is back in tact, in my opinion. My grandma who lives next door told me that once they figured out where the mess-up was, it took them all of 15 minutes before power was back. 15 MINUTES!, and we went nearly 36 hours without power.
Oh well, the power is back. Life is back to normal. Things are good.
