I woke up early this morning because I felt warm, so I removed the sheet covering me and turned to look at my clock. That is when I realized that my room was dark, and so was my clock. It had not happened in a while but it was evident that the power had gone out.
Grabbed my solar flashlight and set out to find my watch...it was 4:41 a.m. and I had no idea when the electricity went out. Looked out the living room window and everything was dark including the street lights.
Why did the power go out? It's not like people were running their washing machine or dryers or for that matter their dishwashers at that hour...it sucks when you don't have a local newspaper to obtain answers. I went back to bed and when I woke up again I felt the cold A/C blowing on my face and my alarm clock was flashing.
We were warned that this week was going to be very hot so last week I went to get my car inspected and then stopped by the Val Verde County Courthouse to purchase my license tags.
There were two people in line in front of me. It is at times like this that I am grateful for living in a small town.

We have a new business coming to Del Rio...Ollie's...I had never heard of them before so I googled them. Seems they will be giving the Dollar stores a run for their money whenever they open.
Saw this travel van with an out-of-state license plate and whose owner is working at this store. It made me sad because I wish Terlita (my camping van) was driveable again.
