It's Sunday and we have had no power all day. We started the day cooking on the coal pot and now it looks like it will end in the same fashion. Yesterday we had a torrential rain in the afternoon which apparently knocked down several power line poles. I'm guessing the dirt around the poles became so saturated with water that the poles just slid out of the holes and somehow damaged the lines. I called the power company and they said we might get power tonight.
Sometimes I wonder if life is easier if you don't have any of the modern convenience , not really but the inconvenience and frustrations of not having something is character refining at times. Pray for strength as we face these challenges on a daily basis.
