Wednesday and the sun is shining! All I hear are chainsaws, mowers, and cussing.
We finally got our power turned on last night. I am quite sure it had nothing to do with the power people staying at our hotel. Trust me I have no shame asking for a favor! We still don’t have hot water though. A pump went out somewhere. But at least I can make tea!
I absolutely hate staying at hotels. I always feel claustrophobic. Instead of sitting in my room I grabbed my Starbucks from the lobby and decided to fish out the chairs from the pool and re-arrange their furniture so it flowed better. It was a lot of outdoor furniture but it felt good to do something. At one point there were over 100,000 people with no power. Not the Cracker Barrel! Nope, they were open and hotel shuttles were dropping people off there all day.
I got in a great workout in their gym, which is fabulous. I took a nice long bubble bath and just as I had settled in with a book my phone beeped. The power at your house is back on. I was out of that tub so fast! Packed my stuff and went home. No hot water is just fine with me a day. From now on I’m keeping a GO bag in the car!
There are still a lot of people, businesses and traffic lights that don’t have power and may not for a few days. But we are grateful to be safe and home. Well, except for OU Boy who had to take a cold shower this morning. Thanks for the good thoughts y’all.
