In addition to email invitations from 45, offering me VIP All Access "join me backstage" at his next rally, there was also this in yesterday’s inbox:
“This is an important safety message from Southern California Edison. Due to forecast fire weather conditions, Southern California Edison continues to explore a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff .... These conditions may result in SCE turning off your power. SCE anticipates that this may occur on Thursday, October 10, 2019 though it may occur earlier or later depending on actual weather conditions.”.
I understand where the energy company is coming from BUT ain’t nobody got time for this. Especially not me, with gut issues, necessitating a freezer full of special foods that I can’t possibly cook in advance and will undoubtedly lose.
No stove, no instant pot, no air fryer, no television, no internet, no lights.
All I can think of is to suck it up, boil a couple eggs, make some almond crackers, which eggs and crackers I can turn into no cook meals with almond butter and avocados.
I’ll drive however far out of the area I must to find a Starbucks with power for coffee AND to ensure the lack of lighting will not interfere with my needlepoint project, I’m going to run out today and grab a neck light.
Not looking forward to roughing it for however long it takes for the Santa Ana Winds to pass through and be gone. This may be the one thing that encourages me to give up my comfortable roost and eventually move out of the area.
