Great! Now it was time to go to town. But no, what was that noise? Oh no, the house generator had kicked on. Something had happened to the electricity. Since today was the day that the paving company was installing some drain pipes beneath our driveway, I could only assume that perhaps they had struck the underground electrical service to the house. I assumed right.The power company was notified, but now knowing how long it would take for the power to be restored, I thought it might be necessary to get the small generator out of the barn and hook up the chicken house warming lights to it to keep my new peeps warm. Back to the barn....to unpack the new generator that Hubbs bought this weekend for just this purpose.Tom Tom was using the generator box as a lounging area to play with his scratching post. "Sorry Tom Tom, but I need that right now." So, I filled the generator with gas and oil and got it set up outside the chicken house. It worked like a charm, and my chicks were cozy warm (it has been a bit cool out these past two days....last night was only 49 degrees).At this point I was not comfortable leaving for town, so I decided to stay until power was restored. I used this time to put together a firewood rack for the front deck. And, I filled it with a couple layers of firewood.Then I assembled some of the upper deck furniture....and sewed a portion of the umbrella that had come apart.Well, eventually the power was restored...but it was too late to head to town. So, I put together a few more chairs and headed out to do the afternoon feeding.
My new motto.......Maybe Tomorrow!!!!!
