comfort and habit

We had an ice storm today.

At 4:30 in the morning, I noticed the lights flickering when I went downstairs to make some coffee…and shortly after that we lost power for the day.

The whole day.

Good grief…we are creatures of habit and comfort.  It was inconvenient.  It wasn’t as much fun as it usually is at our house…kind of dark…but it wasn’t all that bad.

I delivered the mail on wet but traction filled roads.

I was able to maneuver around all the downed limbs.

It was more interesting than devastating.

Check out this video of what a really horrible ice storm looks like.

It’s all a matter of perspective.
