When a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound? WELL....this tree did this morning!!! The tree fell across power lines putting everyone in the dark, so to speak.
It is 2 p.m. and I am enjoying my first cup of coffee. I am always an early riser, but this morning, I was much too slow. Rather suddenly at 6:55 a.m., the electricity went off. Being in the mountains, we are used to these "often" interruptions. But, this one went on for over 6 1/2 hours. We drove to the other side of the lake to the restaurant and they were in the same boat. No electricity!! The Trout went fishing. Does not need electricity for that. I started a new novel. But, the time got a little long.
Then we started discussing dinner. We have a flattened chicken marinating in the refrigerator that we were going to charcoal grill tonight. We have an electric starter for the grill and refuse to use that smelly lighter stuff. Well, we could grill it on the gas grill. Such decisions! Relax!! All is taken care of now. The chicken will be grilled under bricks (supplied by our bricklayer son-in-law) on the charcoal grill, indirectly, and all is well with the world. I hope the chicken will look well enough for a posting.
Appreciate your electricity, and if it should go off, appreciate the quiet. There is a lot of quiet!!!
