Fiona goodbye


Well, we were lucky and weathered the storm without any major mishaps. Lots of branches down and leaves all over the deck, lawn and house. We lost power sometime during the night, so no morning coffee. It was too windy to go outside and start the generator, so we waited until late afternoon when the wind speed had dropped to a safer speed. That way we didn’t risk losing the generator door to the high wind gusts. We had a small battery operated radio, so we were up to date on the days hurricane news and trail of destruction. In the midst of the storm we had no power, no internet and my portable land lines did not work. However a piece of old technology from the sixties came into play. When my land line was hooked up, I thought it might be interesting to also connect my old rotary phone. I had it ring once when my grandson was visiting and asked him to answer it! It was quite amusing looking at the expression on his face as he attempted to use the hand set. Anyway, that aside, at approximately 8 am on Saturday morning my daughter in Halifax phoned to see if we were ok. Of all our technology and advance electronics the only thing working was my old rotary phone.
God Bless and keep reading
