No Power!

You guys! Sorry for going MIA lately…but we had quite the week here. Early on Monday evening, a storm blew through and knocked out our power. We didn’t get it back until Wednesday night. Two whole days with no electricity!

You know what that meant, don’tcha? No power…no computer…no innernets…no blogging. Well, the mom did have her iPhone to be able to check the innernets, but she said the screen is too small for her to do anything meaningful on it.

The mom was discombobulated because she couldn’t do the stuff she usually does like laundry or cooking or watching TV. She also needed to find a cold place to keep the foods in the freezer. She remembered that the dad-guy had a refrigerator at his workplace so she used that. But she still had to throw out lots of foods. Actually she said that it was a good excuse for cleaning out the fridge. Yep…you always gotta look for the bright side, right?

Even I was a bit out of sorts. Who knew not having electricity could be so exhausting? Thank cod it’s on again and things can get back to normal around here.

  1. Yikes!!!!! Storms can be so inconvenient sometimes.
    That was a bad one to knock out your power!
    Glad to see you survived Ernie (and your folks too )
    Yup, that sort of thing disrupts your relaxing and snoozing.
    You have a lot of catching up on sleep to do now!!!!!
    Purrs, Julie

  2. Yikes! We take electricity for granted; the biped often has wondered if she should invest in a generator. It’s a good idea now, with wild storms becoming the norm!

    Take care and have a great weekend.

  3. Ernie between da crazy weather and da craziness of the interwebs we just never know what we will or will not be able to do from day to day
    Hugs Cecilia
    PS you are looking very fine today

  4. That is a long time to be without power. Glad you have got it back now.

  5. Oh noes, Ernie!
    We lost power for 26 hours, and some in our neighborhood are still without.
    However, our internet took three whole days to come back online…that was a nightmare, since I continue to work from home.
    The Hubby refused to open the fridge door, but we only have vegetables and jars of raw almond butter in there anyhow.

  6. OH, MINCE! Which is a nice way of saying that other word. Power outages are the PITS! But at least they do not turn off the Power of Ernie! Glad your mama found a place for the frozens.

  7. Oh Ernie. Mom said it NEVER fails that it is either boiling hot of freezing cold…or in the dead of night when that happens!! AND there goes innerwebs, phone, TV, you name it.

  8. Mee-yow Ernie wee wundered if youss’ gotted hit bye THE storm!!! It barrelled thru here butt only heavy rain…

  9. Yikes, Ernie! This certainly isn’t an ideal time of year to be without power, especially for two days. And going without internet, TV, and all that good stuff is certainly not ideal either. We hope you were all able to stay cool, and we hope you got in lots of naps, Ernie. Purrs!

  10. Losing power is the worst thing! Glad you got it sorted Ernie.

  11. I hate it when the electricity goes out. I’m glad you’re back to normal. I know the kitties are too.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  12. Glad you survived that awful experience – our power outage a while back was awful but only about 10-11 hours and most of that was at night. Mom and Dad went nuts though – no TV….HAHAHA…..

    Hugs, Teddy

  13. Yup, that storm raged through here too, tons of trees down and peeps are still without power in a few areas. We did not loose it thankfully, bout our sons did, one had it back in about 12 hours, the other in about 16 hours. What a pain.

    Glad your up and running again, though we see you having a good easy!

  14. It is exhausting to be without electricity. We lose ours often, one time for 7 days.

  15. With our reliance on all things electric, two days is a super long time to be without power. Our mom believes in silver linings, but she says the icky job of cleaning out the fridge does not fall into that category. Happy things are back to normal for you.

  16. We are so glad things got sorted out Ernies !

  17. We know how hard it is. We went 9 days after Hurricane Frances.

  18. I’m glad the power finally came back on and also that you had another refrigerator option. I bet a lot of people lost a lot of good food.

  19. Yikes that’s a scary long time to go without power!

  20. No power is absolutely no fun Ernie, humans don’t handle it very well.

  21. Humans get so confused when the electricity is out when all they need to do is NAP THROUGH IT.

  22. So glad they finally gave you the power back. No a/c would suck during the summer. Yeah, TW wouldn’t know what to do with herself without computer, tv or the vacuum.

  23. I agree with you Ernie. It’s terrible when the power goes out. So glad you are back to normal.

  24. It’s hard when the electricity goes out! Ask my human what happens here if we don’t have any. She has been known to check into a hotel.

  25. That’s a long time with no electricity, and we agree that teh fridge/freezer issues are always the worst part. We’re glad you’re back on the grid!

  26. Yikes! Two days with no power! Yeah, mum says the big cold box would have had to been tossed out and cleaned here too.

  27. Whoa! Two whole days without power, Ernie? We are glad you, Mom and the Dad Guy are okay, and your power is back on.
