Ready? Storm drains full and flooding
We live like the electricity will go out all the time.
No kidding. I’m a candle lover and keep them in every room with matches. Also we have a system of night lights, which charge plugged so this morning when we lost our lights before dawn, we felt prepared.
In minutes, we both put on our camping headlights because we keep them near our bed and use them for reading at night. We had to rush to shut down our desktop computers before the battery backups failed. I’d been logged into this blog and wondered if anybody cared that we were without power.
Not Powerless without electrical power
While thousands in our county live homeless, we live snug, dry and warm. Yesterday in a Sonoma County Library parking lot, I watched a white-haired woman make a sandwich. The trunk of her car stood open as she laid out two slices of white bread and spread something on them. My guess is she was about 70 plus years or older. My throat filled up with tears.
Wherever you are, white-haired woman, find a warm dry place
White-haired senior I do hope you have found warm shelter and have warm tea to drink and food to eat.
When I think of how wealthy the United States Congressmen and women are, I grit my teeth that they hold the power to make that homeless senior much poorer than she is right now.
