I feel powerless… in an electrical sense. Shortly after publishing my Flock Friday post, we lost power. I’m more surprised that it lasted that long, with all the wind we’ve been having. There are a lot of trees around us, with overhead power lines, so a tree falling on a line takes it out.

We still have internet access, due to UPSes. Made mac & cheese on the gas stovetop (using a lighter) for lunch. The power company estimates it’ll be back on in a few hours, so I’ll just work on my laptop in the meantime.

As ever, the biggest inconvenience is that we have no running water when we have no power, since we’re on a well. But we prepared some jugs of water, and have other stuff to drink, so not too much hassle.
