It's pretty funny that I titled that last post "Current Events" because we haven't had current at our house since Sunday morning — until tonight (Wednesday 10:30 p.m.). What a week — what a winter — it has been. Yes, plenty of "current" events...
Just tonight a crew from the national electric company came and set up a 100 kilowatt generator to get us back on line. They will try to get the wires that bring electricity up to our hamlet, and which were taken down by a big falling tree, hooked back up tomorrow or Friday. Then we will have real electricity again.
We lost two plum trees in the storm, and a section of our roof, early Sunday morning. The roof has been repaired and we had no water damage. Luckily, it was a dry storm. Fierce winds but almost no rain.
We just opened the big chest freezer, now that the current is back on, and most things still seem to be frozen.
Okay, Walt's "intervention" is tomorrow at the clinic in Blois. But I'll try to post again tomorrow morning. And read all the comments. Special thanks to CHM and Cheryl in California for keeping everybody up to date.
Friday is my birthday. I think it is going to be a real celebration.
