I got out of bed, started a pot of coffee, and got the paper to read. I had plenty of light, and the house was warm. It was a normal morning. What a change from yesterday, when I fired up the generator to make a pot of coffee and run the heater in the bathroom, then stoked up the fire to generate some heat.
As I was revelling in a hot shower yesterday, one of the few luxuries we kept during this adventure, up on the roof there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the shower to see what was the matter. A crew was reconnecting us. At 8:30 AM, we regained power.
