94/366 [Making do]

Candlelight

It’s more than thirty one hours since our power went out in a frightening wind storm. In that time, I have spoken on radio, been filmed having breakfast by candlelight and made an appearance on the 6 o’clock news. Glad we had these lanterns, normally used on the tables when we eat al fresco in the summer. And that I had bought plenty of candles, far more than we needed. All the power company can tell us is that reconnection time is ‘unknown’. There are two truck loads of linesmen restoring the fallen lines up the street…they are my heroes!
