Both Sides Now

“In the twilight glow I see her blue eyes crying in the rain.” – Willie Nelson

Well, I have indeed looked at clouds from both sides now. I used to actually like rain. I liked the pitter-patter on the roof. I liked the smell of it in the air. I even liked walking in it. Now, rain stirs in me an unrestrained feeling of fear. Fear that my electricity is about to go off and not come back on for two days.

Our gas and electric company, LG&E, have apparently ignored a problem in our area, because every time it rains we lose power. If the wind blows we lose power. In fact, if rain is predicted, I should just call them up and tell them my power is out, because it will be soon enough.

As soon as I woke up today and noticed it was raining, I ran down the stairs to turn on my coffee pot so that I could make coffee before our power goes off for the day. I’m not a pessimist. My glass is half-full, so to speak. But, my glass is half-full in the dark quite a bit lately.

So, yes, I have looked at clouds from both sides and discovered that LG&E sucks. This has to be a quick entry. You can guess why!
