We have power!

It came on about an hour ago and I wasted no time in switching the
house back over from the generator.

A Good Day Starts with a Good Night's Sleep

Now that they have bumped our neighborhood from "by Monday" restoration to "by Thursday" restoration, we decided to take a few more steps to make things comfortable. Namely, a $100 window unit in the bed room. 6000 BTU isn't going to cool more than the one room, but that's all we needed to get the first good night's sleep in a while.

And while I was at it, I routed the generator through the breaker panel so that we could do away with all the extension cords, close the doors, and clear out the bugs. (Don't worry, my neighbor showed me how and its all perfectly safe.)

Charles is back to school today, Thomas in gymnastics day-camp, and Dianne and I are off to work. With a little luck I'll be able to undo all of this tonight when the power is restored.

Update from Gardner St.

The yard work is done. We still don't have power but the boys don't
seem to mind much.

It looks like school might start Tuesday... might not. Again, the boys
don't seem to mind much.
