My people have spoken, but the wife says I may want to reconsider things if I want to stay married.

Drip, drip, drip...
Five and a half hours later, we've got power again. What a thin thread we rely on for our survival. Another lesson on why I want to either go off-grid or at least have a grid-tied system in our next home. I guess it all depends how far power will be away from the build site. The countdown is on and, God willing, We'll be on our way east in a couple of months.
The power went out this morning, just before we woke up. Thank God we have a generator. Pity I sold the second one recently so there's only 3KW available. That's enough to run the fridges & freezers, the computer router, the TV and a table lamp. I'll definitely be getting the 7KW model before we leave for Nova Scotia.
Okay, so I woke up this morning and my nose is running and my lungs are now slightly congested. This is definitely not as severe as a man cold, so it must be Omicron. What really blows about this is it isn't severe enough to get the man cold treatment from the missus; no breakfast in bed and certainly no grilled cheese with the crusts cut off. Sad. But she is making me some turkey soup from the leftovers from Christmas dinner and the broth she froze. So there is that.
