We hope this blog finds all our NW neighbors and friends safe and dry. What a storm we have been having! Our own electricity was out for 24 hours.
Last night, as we were getting ready for bed our home was still dark. Outside we heard a PSE truck and I thought, what a night to be climbing up electrical poles, in the howling wind, pitch dark and pouring rain!
In the discomfort of no power, it is easy to press our electrical companies to get us back on line. But what a task they have! The weather is usually tough, the hours long and I'm sure they are pressed to their max to get us all back on.
So thank you to the men and women at PSE for all your overtime and harsh working conditions!!
It is a privilege to live in a place where having electricity, indoor plumbing and where hot running water is the norm. Being periodically reminded of this gift is not necessarily a bad thing.
Wishing you all happy holidays, safe and warm homes,
