And the Lord said, Let there be light. And there was light...

Okay, I know I should not sound so frustrated but I am tired and I need to get this out.

DH's parents decide that they are going to get us a generator to run the essentials until we have power. We are so grateful and I can't thank them enough.

Well, we tell them we will meet them 1/2 way to pick it up. Not a hateful drive but still 2 hours up and 2 hours back in just highway time is hard to do after a long day at work. To us, it was worth it not to lose everything in the deep freeze.

We go up and come back without any excitement and I was exhausted because I drove there and back. As we are driving into our area of town, I realize that the traffic lights are up again. And the Mc.Ds light is on again. And then....

We turn the corner to our street and the little widow "candles" are lit in the window. We have power and a $200 rental of a generator we don't need.

I am glad that we have power but I feel like God is saying... "See. Patience is a virtue that you both lack." I now realize the God has the twisted sense of humor.
