Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away

It is an awesome day when I awaken to rain, especially measurable rainfall. I love rain. It makes the flowers grow. It washes my car. It sounds wonderful on the skylight. If the weather is rainy and stormy, I always think positive so long as the electricity doesn’t go out. However, when I lose electricity which takes out the internet, the cable, and my telephone, I get depressed. I have multiple services from Spectrum. When I enrolled in these services, I did not realize that I could lose all three of those services at the same time if I lost electrical power. If I call Duke Power to clear up what is going on, I usually get a very polite robo voice, telling me that they are investigating the situation. Oh, I get over it but not until the internet, cable and telephone are back online. Maybe the positive will be that I will be a bit more grateful for these conveniences when they are all working.

    Thom, That’s why my cell phone is always handy and always charged. My girls gave it to me so they can text me whenever they feel like it and vice versa. Keep it handy when weather is threatening. Patricia
