If this pattern continues, I anticipate the coming of spring to be an unparalleled relief. It’s as much the unpredictability as the risk, the inconvenience as the disappointment at cancellations, reschedulings and taking the long way to town.
Even so, with the power outage at 1 a.m. this morning, we were told to expect it back on at 4 this afternoon. So that it has returned by 7 is the gift of a day.
We at least discovered what we need and don’t have when this happens again–maybe as soon as tonight, when winds will reach 60 mph on the ridges. At least by then the ice will be gone.
