Fitting Celebration


There was a fitting celebration in light last night in the ‘hood. Everybody around here is happy to have their power back.

Before the party, my kids had their friends over, hanging in the (air-conditioned) studio, munching on cookies and chips, then rambling around the farm to see the animals. Ross was talking about a garage/shop he wants to build across the road here. I’m grateful to have a farm my kids enjoy and like to be and bring their friends. I’m grateful for the power company workers who got our electric restored. Grateful to have a generator and know I’ll never go through anything like those first six days without power again. Grateful to have good neighbors, too.

We’re in a good place.

P.S. Morgan and I are off to ride Zip tonight!

    We’re grateful for all those things for you too Suzanne, and we’re grateful to have you back as well. We all missed you a lot. I’m also very grateful that we never lost power for more than a few minutes so the oxygen compressor kept going and I could keep fans on my elderly Pop. I’m thinking I need to scrape the money together for a generator too. Soon.

      Deb, yes, especially if you need to run an oxygen compressor. I heard so many sad stories on the radio about people in desperate straits because of oxygen here. Sad even with generators. There was a story about one woman who had spent everything she had on gas to keep the generator going for her husband’s oxygen.

    Echoing BEG’s sentiment—grateful you and yours are okay. And grateful to Suzanne for hosting this CITR community.

    It’s good when we can see things to be grateful for…even when things aren’t exactly like we want them. So glad you and yours are doing ok.

  8. Murphala says:

    Yes, thanks for hosting a great place to hang out Suzanne…we certainly missed you. It’s sort of like you look out your window and the town you thought you lived in has utterly disappeared! 😀 Glad to have you back! Have fun with Zip!

    You may want to convert your generater to gas in stead of using gasoline. Since as I understand you get your gas free
