We were lucky. We only needed to clean up the refrigerator and the freezers. But this event did give pause to think:
- I was raised without air conditioning. Apparently I can't live without it now. Crazy!
- I had way too much food in the house for 2 people. What gives with that?
- I am totally disgusted with human nature. It was reported by the news that although most people welcomed the electric crews into their neighborhoods, some crews had fireworks thrown at them while they tried to make repairs. We need to weed out these defective humans now before they reproduce and create others of their kind. These defectives need to be isolated on an island in the equator with no electric!! Or better yet, tie those thoughtless individuals up on the top of a power line in 100+ degree heat for 12 hours ... and see how it feels to do that kind of work.
- I love big weather events. A Derecho isn't one of them.
