The storm that knocked my power out also affected about 2.2 million other Michiganders. At one point, after the initial knockout, DTE Energy said that they were still getting as many as 4,000+ calls an hour from people who had lost power. I can’t imagine the mess they faced as they worked around the clock, 24/7, in inclement weather and bitterly cold temperatures to get us all back. I literally cried when our power was restored and I am very grateful for their hard work.
Tonight, I’m also feeling very thankful that even though we didn’t have electricity, heat or water, we had a roof over our heads and the ability to charge our phones in the car. No matter what the situation is, it could definitely be worse. I’m overwhelmed with relief that we are restored, but also praying that those that still are without power will have it soon.
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who read my last chapter, clicked that like button and/or commented. I do appreciate your participation. You guys are the best!
P.S. If you need a pick me up in your day, here is my favorite Judy Garland gif. 😀 It always cheers me up.
