Power to the people!

Talk about depressing. Our power has been out since the storm Friday night!  And I haven’t been depressed. Go figure.  At least the basement is still cool. Great place to hang out and to sleep. Feels like we’re camping. We have our sleeping bags, camping lanterns and food that doesn’t need a fridge.

I woke up this morning and saw light coming into the basement and thought; Yay, the power is back on.  Then realised it was the sun.  Talk about  a major let down.  So I did what any reasonable person would do – I went back to sleep.  No need to rush into a hot house.

And, even with no power and trees down and the traffic from hell because of no stop lights and hunting for an open grocery store and gas station, I’ve been happy – not depressed.  Either all the things I have been doing caused the depression to take a hike or it went all by itself. I don’t really care.  What I do care about is that it’s gone for today.  For today. Just for today it’s gone.  If you’ve ever been depressed you know what a wonderful thing that is.  A day without depression.

Power to the people!  And hurry.  Please.
