Electricity!!!!!

It is a wonderful thing especially when it comes back on. We've only been without it for five days but it seemed like an eternity because of the heat. The power came back on sometime yesterday (Thank you FP&L and all the other linemen helping in FL). The neighborhood was much quieter. Only one generator still going while it burns off the last of its fuel and then it will go silent. That's such a lovely sound (silence). We had A/C last night. Slept in our own bed instead of on recliners and couches in front of the one fan. We had a hot shower this morning and could fix a hot breakfast. Even the phone, internet and cable got fixed yesterday. WOOHOO! TV! Only the water quality still needs work (and my office A/C). We are still need to boil our water before using which was kinda' pointless without electricity. *shrugs* My office is still without A/C but hubbie helped me move my computer to the center office where it is significantly cooler and set up a fan. It will do for duration.

I hope that everyone else affected by the storm has their services fixed very soon.

BTW: The little male cat that lives outside and refuses to be captured reappeared on the patio this morning. He looks no worse for the storm. I'm glad he found a place to hide out. I was worried about him.

Yes, we don't realize how much we depend on our modern conveniences until they are gone.

And I was very happy about the cat, too. I was terribly worried about him.

I'm so glad you're (mostly) back to normal! And that the kitty made it back

That "White Foot" is safe is very good. I wish I could bring him in but he has remained healthy (for the most part) so I figure he is eating somewhere, probably next door with all the other strays. I want to feed him but because of the traveling I do I'm afraid to have him depend on us for food.

They declared our drinking water safe last night so that's one more step to getting back to normal. Now I have a ton of laundry to do.
