I am not a pioneer. Nor do I yearn for the simpler Amish Life! I am a girl who likes her creature comforts . . . which includes . . .
The power came on last night around 9 p.m. Things are back to normal at Linderhof. With air and light and power there was tea this morning! And there shall be breakfast!!! A hot breakfast!
But we would not have had light (and air and tea this morning) if it weren't for the massive effort of
Our power source. I gross at them often for the high price that we pay for electric (or so it seems) and the fact that in our little town, our transformer which is old tends to go out at the blink of every "fried" squirrel. But they certainly stepped up to the plate this weekend. They had crews in place almost immediately to get our town electrified once again!
But the real heroes are the linemen. Who gave up their weekend with their families and whatever plans they had. No college football watching for these guys. Instead they were out working to get the power restored to our whole town!
They are real heroes in my book this weekend!!!
But most of all, I am grateful to . . .
Thomas Alva Edison. I appreciate his invention even more. He did change our lives. I am grateful I live post Edison rather than pre Edison.
Now for another cup of perfectly brewed tea!
