Did I really say that it was fortunate there was a storm brewing so that Pepper could be distracted by tinkering with the generator? Do you think I had taken leave of my senses?
We're into day 4, maybe 5, with no power.
I will definitely assert that having a functioning generator is fortunate! So is having gas for said generator. Pepper left the house yesterday at 7:30 a.m. to get in line at a Walmart in Harahan (a 1 1/2 hour wait in line!) so he could give me 12 gallons of gas for my birthday! He's such a romantic!
Anyway, we've spent the last two nights on neighborhood porches, including one at Moogie's Mansion, in the company of good neighbors, guitar music, and lovely cocktails. (we've spent most of the days after getting clean-up done sitting around in our underwear in front of a fan when the generator is running.)
Pepper just saw several Entergy trucks and guys looking at the downed tree, distribution line, and transformer that appear to be the source of our power outage. I hope they do more than look.
With all this humidity, I think I'm beginning to grow moss. It's not a very good color on me.
