Hello... The time we spend without electrical power can become stressful... I woke up this morning about 1:30 A.M. to find our home without power... It makes for instant panic when your water removal pump back up system fails... Within a hour and fifteen minutes Tom was on the bucket brigade ....[ not a pleasant task at 3:00 A.M. in the morning].... I immediately reported the outage from my cell phone and sortly after a two hour span out power was regained... The candles were lit in the night from main floor to basement to be able to move around... What a wonderful feeling when your lovely lamps lite up and you are not resorting to the third picture for a light source.. I love candles but for ambiance .... Tom is off this very moment in town to purchase a generator as we narrowly escaped what could have been a very large problem... I am so thankful we were able to avoid that... I have some mopping to do as I end this post as some spills were made... We are suppose to drop in temps and our lovely weather is gone for a few days... Blessings to all.
