Tonight another couple, my husband and I went out to view Holiday Lights. It was eerie! Why? Fog surrounded us. It was follow the yellow line or the red lights from the car in front of us. Later, we stopped for a donut and a cup of coffee. Then we sat and chatted for a while. We dropped the couple off at their home and then about an hour later arrived safe and sound at home. Surprise, surprise, surprise, we found out that our electricity had been off. The microwave clock was blinking. Oh yes, we also saw the power company truck was outside fixing the problem. It was a reminder to be thankful for the small things in life like heat and light. We are expecting rain and 50 degree weather. Hopefully, that will clear the ice and snow off sidewalks and streets in the Chicagoland area.
