Before we get power… we are the only house in our neighborhood without any. So it’s probably something on our end, though for the life of me, i cannot figure out what. The lines all appear to be connected, nothing looks loose. But here we are. We don’t have the hardware to connect a generator to the house, so that’s out. Besides, we plan on moving in a year or so anyway, an I’m not dropping a grand or more just to have electricity for a few days.
We did, however buy a kerosene heater. Worry not, dear reader, we followed the instructions thoroughly, and this is an indoor heater… made for just such an emergency. It doesn’t help us with the water, but at least we have heat. We have enough drinking water for a few days, and there’s water in the rain barrels for flushing the commodes. Showers… well, that’s another story.
Anyway, I hope we can get this figured out sooner rather than later, because being without power is downright boring. It’s too dark in my house to read or do crafting and i didn’t realize just how dark it was until i couldn’t turn on the lights. ^_^
