This is a photo of a Connecticut Light and Power repair truck. Don't see one? Well, neither have we. There are no substantial estimates as to when our power will be restored. The electric company is saying that Sunday is the goal. I have to admit I'm getting tired of driving miles to get a hot shower, of cooking on the porch or in the garage, of having to go to the library just to charge my cell phone, of feeling cut off from the events of the world due to having limited access to news sources. On the other hand, our community as a whole has been handling this so well. There's a real feeling of camaraderie at the library, which has become the town gathering place. We do have the woodstove, so we're not freezing (though using sleeping bags in a frigid bedroom is getting old.) Seeking hot water gave me an unexpected opportunity to see the granddudes. There is wifi at the library, but it's under a demand it wasn't built to handle, so it's very slow. I miss visiting all your blogs! I promise to be back if ever one of those elusive trucks appears.
