We have electricity. Such a simple phrase to say, and such a familiar concept in
our daily lives, it does not convey the potential stress and frustration derived from dealing with the sole purveyor of this quintessential facet of our everyday experience.
After submitting the application in August, it took six months for the power company to complete the task. During the first five months of which absolutely no measurable progress was made—unless you were keeping a tally of redundant phone calls and emails.
A maddening experience. I don’t recommend trying it yourself unless you have to.
All whining aside, though, it is done. And now we can commence with the plans that we had for November (remember, the month when the power was going to be put in). We can now build our greenhouse, our pole barn, our wash station, and our cooler. Then we can continue with the February work of crop planning, vehicle maintenance, taxes, and starting seeds! Four months work in the time of one…. those are farmer’s odds. And we’ll take ‘em.
