The Heart of Darkness

Thirty-eight hours without electricity and still counting. I'm deteriorating. Now limping (the result of tripping over a black cat in the darkness).

On my drive home last night around 8:30 (I wasn't motivated to leave the comfort of lights, a microwave and refrigerator), I saw a welcome sight on the highway. A caravan of tall power and light trucks--I counted twelve--coming into Dallas from the south. I'm assuming they are loaners from Waco or Houston.

This morning's news reported there are "only" 65,000 households still without electricity and they expect all will be back online by Sunday. Sunday????

I'll be back later with today's post. Lots of things going on in the larger world.

Later . . .
