It totally amazes me what a small box can do–imagine, it makes lights come on, and water run from the faucet!  Some very good friends have loaned us a generator, and even though a large tree is sitting on top of our internet cable line, apparently it still works.  We are very grateful to have cold water, lights, computer, and perhaps even a little bit of television tonight–off and on, of course!

Our house the preceding nights–a full moon really helps.
