    Had some strong storms come through the area this evening, hope everyone is ok. I was lucky, telephone pole at the end of the drive snapped in half and a large pine about 12 ft from my garage broke about 4 feet from the ground and thank God it fell opposite of the garage but took out power lines to the barn. Power company said earliest we will get power back is tomorrow night. Till then oil lamps and candles will do.

    With no power, my wife goes nuts! Yesterday the house got to a chilly 56°, I usually burn slabwood I barter for from the Amish mill, so I went out and fell a dead standing maple in my back woods and cut it up into banking logs for the fireplace. My wife didn't know what do do without power, I on the other hand loved it. Oil lamps burning, the glow of the fire, the fun of the simple way of life. Made a fire outside and cooked up some chicken breast and roasted potatoes for dinner. Then about 10pm the power company shows up and starts working and I woke up to having power. What a let down, I was really enjoying, and so was my cat Gus. IMG_20171106_191245759.jpg

    I have lost power for a few days and also found it to be a let down when power was restored. My wife, however, was very glad to have lights / heat / stove / TV again. If not for her, I think I could easily do without any modern "conveniences" and be a hermit.
