The power on just up the street,

There they have a/c and up can go their feet,

From my place I can see their lights on coming,

8 days we’ve been without, that’s my summing…

Unbelievable temperatures here yesterday. In the mid eighties in the morning, but in the afternoon it dropped into the seventies. Why? A LOT of rain coming through the area.
