As if attending a funeral yesterday wasn’t bad enough, we had a thunderstorm roar thru last evening bringing two claps of thunder and high winds that blew a tree branch onto the electric wires knocking out the electricity for almost three hours. It is hard to imagine what our foremothers did without electricity. God knew what he was doing when he planted me in this century. I love using all the off/on switches of modern conveniences such as computers, televisions and microwaves. Although I do live near a river, it is difficult to imagine dragging a load of dirty clothes to it and them banging them on a rock to wash them. Nope, not this kid, give me a switch! So, what does one do in the dark? I took Rozie for a walk and to have seen a shining streetlight would have been a wonderful sight.
