12:16 pm Dec. 24th
The lights came back on. Thirteen days without electricity. How vulnerable we are!
It's now 2:30 pm. Two loads of wash done, Christmas morning pound cake is in the oven, Swedish meatballs are simmering in the crockpot. Our Los Angeles son is home, and our Rhode Island son is on the way. Now it can be Christmas.
Thanks all of you who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers.
