Default Calling fasteddie

I had to laugh at your "good morning" post! Last Wednesday I was just getting ready to walk out the door to run some errands and then on to a dr. appt. that had already been rescheduled 3 times. Just as I picked up my purse the power went out and guess what? Garage door openers don't operate without electricity! Yes, I know that there is an override but mine requires 2 people to operate and there was just me. Plus if there had been someone else, my car was parked directly under the cord you have to pull!


My DH had to come home and take me to the dr. and the errands didn't get done. We really don't know how much we rely on these things to work until they DON'T!

We are so civilized today that our life stops when electricity fails.

My friends did for 3 weeks after Rita. He told me that after spending about $60 a day for gas to keep a small generator going he will NEVER complain about his electric bill again.

Arkiegal,

I can feel your pain. In the grand scheme of things, a garage door opener that doesn't work is such a small thing, but when you have plans, such an inconvenience seems pretty big at the time. When you look back on it, it's just something to laugh about (or share with your friends).

Maybe the garage opener gods were just trying to get a little chuckle out of our misfortunes.
