If Not for Bad Luck ....

November 11th, 2020 at 05:53 pm

I would have no luck at all.  Sometimes I feel that way.  Yesterday evening, after spending almost $100 on groceries, my power went out in a storm and stayed out for 18 hours.  A lot of the food I bought will have to be thrown away.  Sometimes I just feel like I'm hitting my head against a wall.

Had I been more on the ball I could have saved some of it, but it was black as pitch in the house and I didn't think the power would be out so long.  It's never been out more than a few minutes before.

I didn't get much sleep, because I was so upset.  This morning, there was no heat and no hot water.  I had to keep driving around so I could charge my phone.  It was dismal.  Thank goodness things are back to normal, but now I have the task of getting rid of all that compromised food.  Sigh.

    So sorry to hear about that! Check with your homeowners’ insurance as mine covered the cost of food lost during after a hurricane outage.

    My homeowner's insurance has a $500 deductible, so it wouldn't help with the food. I probably lost about $100 worth.
