The sun sets on another day...

Power, tension, angst, fiery indignation, more power, a little burn, gas fumes, exhaust fumes, a few carbs in between, filler up, and ahhhhh. All these things relate directly to a power outage in an ice storm. Sounds like fun eh? Well, you don't want to be unprepared when you see it coming and you want to be wary of the crack crack crack of trees as they fall all around you. Well, maybe that's just me.

So tonight at sunset I was keeping a generator running to keep water out of the basement during a pouring rain deluge in a semi ice storm surrounded by cracking trees, and in the middle of it all, I smiled. Why? Well, I know a lot of people who freak out when things go south, and I do admit I am pretty much done with the weird weather, but having a handle on it and staying ahead has a certain amount of satisfaction tied to it.

You know, curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back and I was satisfied at keeping a house warm, keeping power on key elements of the house, and keeping on keeping on. To me that is a big part of a big key.

So as the sun sets on another day, I will make this short and sweet today, when life hands you lemons, make a strawberry slushie and walk all over those lemons, after all it is your choice daily to make the world what you ant it to be. Enjoy it even if IT is really getting you down, turn it around. You can do it if you try, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and ice is nice but icees are tasty...
