Windy

Yesterday was a crazy bad windstorm. We did not fair well at our home.

The top half of a tree snapped off and crashed down onto our roof and deck. Moments later, our power got knocked out.

We ended up going out for dinner. The restaurant was packed. Seems that when 120,000 people don’t have power- they all go out for meals.

Our power was not restored until just after lunch today. A little over 25 hours without heat, electricity and water was becoming frustrating. I’m glad that BC Hydro was able to get everything back up and running.

Every time our power goes out, my wife and I talk about getting a generator. Then the power goes on and we figure that for the four or five days a year without power we cannot justify a couple thousand dollars. So a warm fire and going out will just have to do.

Plus, we now have another tree for firewood!
