We finally got power restored on Thursday--we had to have an electrician come out to do some repair work to the conduit/tubing/riser that had come apart. On Tuesday, the FPL woman told me that we didn't have to do that, that the crew would fix whatever damage they found. On Wednesday, the crew said no. I called several electricians--thank God for Facebook and my various communities there who could make recommendations.
I feel fortunate to have found an electrician who could come the next day, instead of in October. I feel fortunate to have power and even more fortunate not to have to do battle with Comcast.
During the rain yesterday, the first rain since Irma, we discovered a leak in the laundry room. I'm trying not to feel overwhelmed by the ever-growing to-do list.
I hope that this week will see a restoration to some sense of normalcy, even with all the repairs we need to make. I hope to be back to blogging more regularly this week.
