‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving and all through the house, not a sound was stirring, not even a mouse. There were the normal house crackles, and strange bumps through the night, but the electricity was off, and that was not right.
The power went off at 5:35 p.m., I checked the breaker boxes, and all was correctly arranged. I called the company, and waited, and waited, and waited, and nothing changed. I called once again, in hopes for a different result, but nothing happened, and I was beginning to sulk. I made a third call, and pressed and insisted, “At least tell me someone is working on the problem.”
I was assured there was a confirmed power outage in my area, someone was working on it, but they had no estimate of when it would be fixed. My turkey was raw, my pumpkin pie not baked, how can I make them with no power. Thanksgiving dinner was at stake.
