ELECTRICITY! On the heels of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation in the northeast I am thankful for something that I take for granted almost every day. I am so grateful for the benefits of electricity. I’ve been without power before. Seven or eight days without power in the heat of August this far south will certainly make you happy to have air conditioning! Hurricanes have spared us this year, so we’ve been blessed in that regard. I am ever thankful for my air conditioning, my washing machine, and my dishwasher. Yes, I could live without these things, but I’m glad I don’t have to do so!
