The backyard’s bright as the crack of dawn, the front walk looks like runway lights, it’s kinda like noon in the dead of night…. My favorite song at the moment! Since I just turned on every light in my house! JUST BECAUSE I CAN.
It’s always so sudden when power returns. You can hardly believe it. For us, it’s a day earlier than anticipated (if that), so it was a surprise. A wonderful one.
NO MORE BUCKETS!!!!!!
And I have a generator now!!! I am so happy. I will never go through anything like those first six days again.
Of course, I had just sent Ross out to fill up the gas cans. Weston has a lot of mowing to do, though, ha. Mow, my child, until the gas is gone.
My neighbor is having his July 4th party tonight. Immediately after the power came on, he started shooting off fireworks. (It’s not dark yet.) We are all so excited around here, let me tell you. While the a/c is cooling the house down, we’re off to our neighbor’s fireworks party to celebrate!

Yayyyyy, Suzanne! :snoopy: I went through that for 10 days this part January when we had an ice storm up here. I was so grateful for lights, warmth, hot water — all the good things of modern life.

Hey there! I bought a 25 gallon plastic tank that operates on a car type battery from the farm store. It has a sprayer and it is so nice not to lug bucketes of water anymore.
So happy your power is on!
