Many Blessings Upon Them

The FPL team who got our power back on in under one hour during the storm here last night.

There was a lot of thunder & lightning, and heavy rain, when my daughter heard that "pop" of a transformer, and saw a shower of sparks at the pole in front of our yard. Out goes the power.

We lit candles, got out our "battery-free" flashlights, called in the outage, and settled down to wait, figuring we'd have to wait for the storm to blow over before they could do anything.

Not so. Less than an hour after I called, we heard a strange beeping sort of sound, and there in the pouring rain, in the dark, with thunder & lightning still going on, was the FPL truck coming along our street. A few minutes after that, the power was back on.

Huge thanks & good Karma to those linemen who came out & worked in that nasty weather, & in the dark! :-)

Yeah! It's like last winter when we had an ice storm and a broken tree limb out front threatened to take out our electricity and phone line, they came right out and cut the limb off. Hooray for the power guys! (and gals if they're there).

There are some girls doing that job, yes - gods bless 'em!
Poor things have been busy in my neighborhood - 2 nights after the storm outage, somebody ran their car into a power pole at 2am. That one took a bit longer to fix, of course.
(& I don't know what caused the wreck or how the people involved are...)
