Power Outage

It’s amazing how far back an all-day power outage can set you.

Plan A: bake bread, do laundry, write and walk dogs in the afternoon.

I went with Plan B: walk dogs (Big Butter Trail) – came home – read. At about 3 I went into town to see if I could find some Internet at Apple Tree – I needed to know meeting times for our snowshoe trip tomorrow. The Apple Tree had decided to close early and Nuru wasn’t open so that was that.

The power came on at 4.30. Laundry doing just now. I have soup I need to make – takes a long time – and bread will not be done until Thursday which means no hiking on Thursday.


Stuff happens right? Trees come down and take out lines.

But here’s what’s interesting. The power went down in the small hours of the morning. A crew arrived on scene at 9 a.m. Evidence 2 – another planned power out on May 6 from 7 a.m. – 7. p.m.

I’ve been using power for a long time in my life – never have I experienced this. Okay – we are out in the boonies – I get it. But really? We pay the same rates right?

Here’s my deal: I’m happy to live totally off grid and not worry about any of this stuff. But if I’m on-grid, then I want to be treated fairly – just like every other customer.

Do I sound like a spoiled princess?


But you know what they say – if you don’t like it, leave.

Yup. (grumble) (all the same, really happy that the power is back)
