Yesterday morning dawned cooler and very, very wet. It had rained most of the night and at 8:50 a.m. it was still coming down. I had grand plans to finish any computer work early and then spend most of the day in my studio. Didn't happen.
Just before 9:00 a.m. there was a large bang and the power went out. My computer room is in the basement (no windows), the same as my studio room (no windows). Everything was pitch dark and with the bang (and shaking) I thought something had come down on the house. The house was fine, however one of the 100 year old maples across the street had lost half of it's "body" due to the rain (and obviously rot).
Yesterday was also garbage day and one of the garbage truck drivers decided rather than backing up and taking another street to get back on his collection route, he would careen around the hydro workers and use my neighbour's lawn as a speedway. He did the same thing on the way back down the street. Stupid.
Hydro was restored early afternoon, but for some reason, I had no internet until later last night. I did get some work done in my studio once the lights came back on though.
Today is gorgeous, sunny and hot, but not the unbearable, sweltering heat of last week, and NO humidity. Hope everyone is having a great day!
