Look what my calendar said for yesterday:
In my little house, in my little town! I have been kicking tail to get the house clean, grout lines filled, windows sparkling. It's been exhausting!! Scheduling anything in the mountains in January is sketchy. But, never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be in the middle of a flood watch. Many of our neighboring county schools have been closed due to washed out roads and sandbags were set up outside stores. Our backyard creek has swelled into the landscaping and is so powerful with the 5 days of solid rain, that we can hear it roaring inside over the TV.
When I got up yesterday, the lights began to flicker. Within minutes the power was struggling to stay on. 'Oh, please not today!' I was praying. But, an hour into the shoot, we lost it. Every single wonderful drop of pretty power had left us. We all 5 stood around my kitchen island, staring at each other in the dark. And then I was like, I'll take matters into my own hands...
I got on the horn. 'Look Duke Energy, sir, please, please, please, flip my switch! I need this desperately!'
No such luck. Instead, we got a recording telling us that they hoped to have the power back on in 2 1/2 hours.....
Unbeknownst to me, Robert had brought home an extra generator from his dads vacation home a month earlier. What ?! Hallelujah!
After a few, we were back in business.
I can't wait to share all the details with you. I think it comes out in May. I'm excited!
Oh, and the power is back on--just in time for yesterdays floods to turn into an official flashing across the TV winter snow storm today ... possibly 6" !! really??
