Morning Wake Up Call

Sorry that the post on my blog was so late today but there is a pretty good reason. At 6:30 am this morning my husband and I were jolted out of bed by an extremely loud thump somewhere in the house. As we raced around looking for whatever it was we thought had fallen of a shelf somewhere we noticed that our power was out. I finally put 2 and 2 together and went out onto the deck that goes across the back of our house and overlooks a creek area. Why, might you ask, would I go out there? Because the line that runs from the pole to the house goes over our deck through all the trees that overlook the creek area. Sure enough the big thump we heard was a tree finally "giving up the ghost". (It had fallen across the line that runs into the house and ripped it right off the pole.) The power was restored around 11 am when the guys came out from Consumers and reattached the line to the pole, but the phone lines took until 4pm to get someone out here. (We have our cable service through AT&T.)

So now everything is restored but we have to go cut up a tree and haul it out next weekend. (If it's not one thing it's another.)
