That pretty much describes yesterday. The broken toilet seat got replaced. The front yard got mowed. Then the Shenandoah River called.
Beach chair immersed in the water and a book. Goldfinches flitting in the trees and dragonflies landing on my shoulders. Minnows nibbling on my toes. Some sunburn happened. Nice, nice day for those of us that could then retreat to air conditioning, a shower, and cold beer.
Most of my immediate area is back on-line. The D.C. - Baltimore areas are getting better but thousands are still without power and broiling in the heat. There are talks of hearings again, especially since a big increase in fees is coming. Above ground lines ($1 million a mile to put underground), homeowners who won't give permission to trim trees, the ferocity of the storm are all being given as reasons. Or excuses. I'm sort of torn on my opinion. Our own power company had to deal with things like this, some in remote areas.
That's not exactly the same as a tree limb down on a line.
