I have a new love in my life.
Isn't he the one that discovered/harnessed electricity?
OH MY GOSH!
I LOVE ELECTRICITY!
I also love the guys at Pacific Power and the utilities department of the city who worked all night long so I could finally get a shower and cook something without propane.
And I love my phone.
And the HEATER...oh the HEATER!!
Okay, you get it already. I know.
Whew, what a few days it's been. Lots of folks still without power or phone.
We lost the oldest tree in Washington here at Whitman campus. And a LOT of other trees. Lots of streets still closed.
And I'm way behind on everything that needs to happen for Monday.
But I'm warm now, so really, how bad can it be?
Besides, we got to play Dutch Blitz and Outburst and Apples to Apples by candlelight. And, for while anyway, that's even better than Rock Band. Especially with Q-baby, Donald, Drew, Will, Zach, Ali and a few others.
And we got to chase burglars away from the neighbor's house. Koda can sound REALLY scary.
Zach had a great game for WaHi tonight and the team remains undefeated.
And the Seahawks scored 14 points in 28 seconds and then, just for fun, scored another touchdown in the last minute of the game. Way cool.
So, yeah, all is well for the Lowell Street gang.
Love you all....
Patti...all my positive thoughts are with you, still. Hang in there. All is not lost if you can make yourself a cup of coffee without a camp stove! Many hugs.
