my dinner plans were over taken by today’s events. I am emotionally exhausted.
This morning my neighbor across the street had a “minor” heart attack. I walked out of my house for one of Bindi’s walks to the sight of the ambulance across the street. As it pulled away, his wife backed out of their garage to follow him to the hospital. At that time she did not know what the problem was. He will be home on Thursday, but she can not visit him because of the virus.
Then Bindi and I were returning from our long afternoon walk, and as we walked past an electrical “box” around the corner from my place, it “popped” and emitted a huge plume of smoke. No flames, and once the smoke dissipated nothing else happened. My generator was supplying power to my place when I got home. When I called the power company they confirmed a power outage had caused a problem for 126 households. But those heroes had it fixed in less than two hours.
But when the power came back on, the house alarm of my other neighbors across the street was blaring. I tried their doorbell. No answer. Just as I was about to call 911, it stopped. Still do not know what happened, but I suspect it was caused by the sudden resumption of power.
And to round off a very eventful day, someone hacked into a neighbor’s email account. It was discovered when I called them in response to the email I received asking if I could do them a favor. They had not send it. As I was talking to them on the phone, the hacker followed up the original message with a second email requesting that I go to the store for them and buy a $50 “STEAM” card, since they were traveling. Good grief.
So I decided to have another lemon drop martini night, since I think the end of the world may be near.
Tomorrow has to be better.
Stay well everyone!
