I’m on the back porch contemplating the outcome of my Deere meditations as I cool down with some ice water. Looking good. Now for a shower and lunch.
Ever since Harvey I’ve been flummoxed by the outside power outlets being dead. I’d checked the breaker box over and over. I’d checked the ground fault outlets throughout the house looking for one that tripped. Finally, I was on my way into the granny flat to see if it was hiding in there.
