A Tuesday Thunderstorm

Ka-Boom! Thunder cracked and I yelled out. Cats are hiding under my bed. If I could get under there with them, I probably would!

Our satellite lost its signal and we have no movies to watch. Boring, boring, boring. I could read but the power is flickering on and off. It won’t be long and we’ll be sitting in the dark.

I hate when the power goes out. When you’re on a private well, that means there’s no power for the pump to fill the water tank. You have to make do with the water that’s already in the tank but when it’s gone you’re SOL. If you’re lucky the power will come back on before you use all the dishes in the house or more importantly before the toilet is “all fulled up” as Dad says.

The second big thunder strike took out my lift chair, while it was in the “up” position. Damn. I’ll have to look and see if there’s a reset button. I doubt it. Guess it’s back to the old flip-lever recliner.

I miss my Wi-Fi. I’ve had the modem and satellite box unplugged for fear of losing it like I did my chair. Using my phone to write, upload etc. I have 4g but it’s not the best signal out here in the boonies. This is going to take forever…and a day.
