Normally I have a post all ready to publish while I’m sleeping, but Mother Nature threw off my Blogging Mojo. We had some wicked storms roll through here periodically all weekend that caused mayhem in the household. Well, OK, not really that dramatic, but still.
Having scattered thunderstorms Friday, Saturday and Sunday tend to mess up any kind of electronic plans when the power gets knocked out even for a few minutes. Resetting the digital clocks in the house became a regular routine this weekend. Since we had some things fried by lightning in the past, we tend to unplug the ‘important’ stuff just in case. Like our computers.
Yesterday morning I woke up to loud thunder and lightning and a torrential downpour – you could hear the cracks of lightning followed almost immediately by the thunder which sounded like it was right on top of us. My first thought was I better hurry up and get up so I can make sure I have a cup of coffee before the power goes out. Priorities, you know.
as I was finishing getting dressed, the power went out. I should have just gotten my coffee naked. I’d have a cup by now. When the power came on a short time later, I scrambled to get my coffee, in case this was just a teaser from Mother Nature. It was
. The power went out just as I was ready to hit the ‘brew’ button. Thanks
, Mother Nature.
No coffee, no electricity, no computer, no internet. Not a good way to start off a day. Next time I’ll get my coffee naked – then at least I’ll have that. Luckily today will be sunny, though hot and humid, so I’ll have some time to play catch up since I don’t have to worried about electronics getting fried. Coffee in hand, I’m ready to start my day.
