Generators were at a premium on day 2. We were able to get one and keep the sump pump and our refrigerator working. I never realized how dependent we are on electricity! More luck for us: we replaced our electric stove for a gas version, so at least I could cook! By day 3, winter camping in our house was beginning to get old and we decided that if the power did not come on the next day, we would go where it was available. While sharing pizza with our friends, we noticed that Christmas lights were blazing on our side of the neighborhood. We asked in disbelief, “Now why would you waste generator power on lights?!!” Then we saw lights up and down the street. “We have POWER!!, Ok, love ya and thanks for the pizza, but we are going home!” I never knew turning on ALL the lights in one’s house could bring such joy! I guess I was listening to the radio when the power went out, because as we walked in, I could hear Frank singing “Jingle Bells”.
Did you figure it out?
I know, it’s a trick question. The song doesn’t say- but most people think it’s Bobtail. The lyrics are actually:
“Bells on bob tails ring, making spirits bright…”
It was fun to sing it though, wasn’t it?
Yup, my spirits are bright this year and so are the lights on my tree.
