Front Door Whimsy
We are recovering from–and I quote the radio news–“the worst power outage in the history of Maine.”
I’ve been without power since yesterday morning.
My new favorite words: “my generator.”
It runs EVERYTHING, which means I can watch tv, wash, sew, and not worry about food going bad in freezers in this warm weather.
A day or so before the storm, I stood outside and placed drying marigolds from a gift pot (thanks Betsy and Bill) into the front door wreath.
I later found the wreath in the front yard–with a few flowers still intact.
I’ve been through lots of storms up here on Howe Hill, but I’ve never felt the house shake and tremble and groan like it did in the worst of the storm.
Mother is so not happy with us.
