We’ve Got the Power

Early yesterday afternoon Central Maine Power restored electric service to our camp 96 hours after Tropical Storm Irene knocked it out.  I had just left an Incoming Students’ Parents’ Orientation (too many modifiers) Lunch when the answering machine responded to my fourth phone call to the camp in five hours.  Answering machine responding = live electric power.  I called again to query our alarm system, just to hear its robotic voice say “the power is on.”  Great news, since Nate was hosting friends for dinner at the camp last night and we have a houseful of guests arriving from Florida at midnight tonight.
