Powerless In Maine..Part Of The Deal


    Well here I sit using a laptop by candlelight, an odd combination of old and new.  Our power went out yesterday afternoon around 3PM . And we are just one of nearly 79,000 households and businesses in mid-Maine that are without electricity, with no realistic hope of getting re-energized before Christmas. 

Or so "they" say.  

    Our newly installed, propane fired, Mr. Heater is cranked. The worse part right now? ..no coffee.. Life in Maine..I guess this is part of the deal..


  1. Mike lets hope it's a short lived outage.
    Down east got hit hard.
    I wish you the best.

  2. Monday was really a killer day for power. I had hoped the storm was done. Here's wishing Central Maine or Emera gets to you quickly! Stay warm!

    1. Thank you PenPaddle..we are back on.line and counting our blessings. Happy New Year to you!
