Four and half hours of a power outage last night!

Storm related.
And oddly enough we still had no Netflix on the TV even after the power came back on, by morning we had decided to call for help, but we did one simple fix, unplugged and then plugged it back in, the router that is, and it worked! We had tried over and over again putting in our password and other asked for numbers but nothing seemed to be working, only the TV not my laptop or the phones, odd since everything else was fine, online/Wi-Fi.
Hubby even felt the heat mounting indoors with no air-conditioning working and ice packs were not helping me one iota, so fortunately he was able to start up one of our two gasoline generators that were bought one twelve years ago and the other a few years later, but they are checked and restarted yearly before the season that is now, he had just checked them recently, to make sure that they still worked and they do.
You see then gas/petrol was not as expensive as even now, and we had gotten two of them, one for all the electric and the other just to run our central air due to my MS heat sensitivity.
So the one for the air was put on and did its job nicely bringing the temperature down to a humane level.
Hubby informed me that we had enough fuel to last up to twelve hours, great!
Just about when I was frustrated with FPL, Florida Power and Light, the only game in town, sending a message via our old landline corded phone(a must to keep in a storm) about not being able to fix it till one fifteen A.M. it went back on.
Sure we had no power for weeks after Hurricane Charley, but this was just a rain storm and we were only three days into the season!
I felt like if this is a sign of things to come then boy are we in for it!
I sure hope not.
Right now we have a possibility in the south western Gulf that has a chance of developing into Colin the third named storm of the season already!
That would be only in the next two days, so we have been watching the weather information closely.

Any-who, according to local and national weather stations it appears that it will be a depression or slight storm, a rain maker with flooding possible and heading mostly north of us.

We survived unscathed thankfully again, and we seem to do that regularly, and when it comes down to it that is all what truly matters, right?

Love to all, be well, blessings!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
