Back in Business

Power has been restored and all is back to normal. The funny thing about having no power is how you need it to find out about updates. The electric company had called my home several times to update the situation. This is great except with digital phone service there was no power to receive the call. They set up a great website called storm central telling you about the homes in your area without power and an estimate of return to service. If you have no power, you have very little chance of reading a web page. The customer service calls were closed and handed of to an auto attendant. This you could call form anywhere and was very accurate and updated often. So we find once again just the same as during 9/11 the cell phone is the most powerful gadget you own. This is providing you have a way to keep it charged. The cell phone towers never went out service, which they did during Katrina so that is the only example we can remember when even a cell phone was of no use. So we look forward to picking up and moving their stacks of paper piled high on all desks as the to do list from before Friday has had many items taken of and of course we have done nothing to take any off. We could not do anything by candlelight and wondered how Benjamin Franklin accomplished so much this way. Well onward and upward, as the holiday season is fast approaching and we are all a weekend behind.

Forgive them that tear down my soul
Bless them that they might grow old
And free them so that they may know
That it’s never too late
