Power Rangers

Darnit. I had lots of photos to post today, but the power was off this morning, so I couldn't upload them. I woke up at 7:24 because my alarm clock was dead (I'm supposed to be at work at 8 and live 40 minutes away).

Our power goes out unreasonably often. During any heavy storm, it goes off several times because, we believe, of tree limbs too close to the lines. When the wind blows again and knocks the limbs off the lines, the power comes back on. Today was the last straw for me, even though it may be totally unrelated to the tree limbs in this case.

Darwin says it's our responsibility, not the power company's, to keep our limbs away from the power lines. Okay. So Darwin is going to check on it and do something about it, if possible, tonight. If not, there's a tree or two about to get whacked.

Sound like you need a battery back up alarm clock. It runs off the outlet but when the power goes out it helps keep all the settings.

It would help you not have to reset it all the time too.

You're right, of course. I think my clock actually IS a battery-backup clock but just doesn't have batteries in it!

Electrical problems? No electricity, no problem!

It is all in the perception.....

Drinking problem? I drink, I fall over no problem...

The puncuation and word inflection
and of course

Money problems? No money, no problem.

The reality of it all!

There was a medium sized dead tree on the fenceline at my house. In a wind storm it fell over and landed on the power lines to the house. It pulled one of the line anchors off the side of the house but all the power was still on. I went out to cut it down and the neighbor freaked-out thinking I would inadvertently hack through a wire and kill myself. I called Consumers Energy and they came out, got the tree off the line and then cut it up and it didn't cost me anything. Call your power company and see if they'll cut the tree back, you never know.
