And it is like a war zone trying to navigate all the downed trees in the area.
I'm wondering what people did for entertainment before Tesla and Thomas Alva Edison. But on the other hand, I see a Dystopic novel in my future!
The entire area was dark last night except for one place - the local supermarket. The owner doesn't know why he has electricity when everybody else does. Like a moth to flame, I drove there last night. The place was packed. There is a little bakery/coffee shop inside and they had free wi-fi so it was standing room only!
The owner got on the PA and reported the local news as it happened and also offered everyone free storage space in his freezers/refrigerators. He said, just bring your foods, label the bags with your name on it and I'll keep it cold for you. I thought that was very neighborly and he just earned my business away from the big chain grocery stores.
