    • Welcome back Mimi. What is it with you and this power thing?

      • It has been really awful – all of the power lines are above ground, and all of the trees very mature – it’s not a great combination when these big storms come through I guess. And though we’re only 20+ miles outside of DC, our houses are not in a development per se – there’s only 16 of us, so they typically worry about our power last. How’s that for a lengthy explanation to a simple question. Not that I’m frustrated or anything.
