Roll out the ...

This afternoon, we had an experience that ran counter to our usual one when electric power is lost. We are on a small power grid that is bounded by water on two sides and the end of the grids next to ours, on the third and fourth sides. Because there are about 20 households on our grid, we are among the last in our area to receive attention when our area blacks out.

During infrastructure damage following hurricanes, we can wait for up to two weeks to have power restored. We have experienced this more than once.

However today when a great deal of our state suffered a power outage, we had ours restored in about half an hour. Now we are listening to media coverage of stories such as people in traffic taking two hours to drive14 miles.

This is certainly a reversal of fortune. Or perhaps it was just
not our turn to be in the barrel ...
