In Praise of Linemen

Yeah - It has kinda' been a mess around here.

I tend to forget how much I enjoy the luxury of power - until it is gone. I don't ever really think before flipping a switch or plugging anything in. Really, honestly, do you think about these things?
  • Being able to see later than 4:30 at night
  • Taking a bath, flushing the toilet, or getting a glass of water
  • Keeping the house heated to above 40 degrees
  • Making a phone call or using the internet
  • Knowing what is happening in the news
  • Being able to vacuum, or wash clothes
  • Drinking warm coffee
  • Knowing what time it is
Power. It is oh-so-useful.

I love these guys!

And some came as far as Michigan and Canada just to help us. A big thank you to all of them who worked long hours to help. Your are right Sheryl, we don't how wonderful we have it until it is taken away.
