I don’t know about you, but where I live, in my house, our power goes out ALL.THE.TIME. It doesn’t even need to be storming out. We’re hooked up to a weird power circuit and if the power goes out 5 minutes away down a few roads, ours will go out while our neighbors will be totally fine. It’s killer. I keep making the mistake of perfectly resetting all the digital clocks and then the next night, the power will go out again and all my work was for nothing (haha!). Thankfully, these outages have only been a few hours at most recently, but any time clouds roll in, I hold my breath. The longest out power was ever out was during Hurricane Sandy back in 2012? It was like 7-8 days…
I have the power company’s number on speed dial now. As soon as it goes off, I put that call in to send an alert. Not fun, but it’s something completely out of my control. What is in my control is finding fabulous reading material for you to browse! So may the power be with you and have a fantastic (second to last!?) weekend of July!
