A power line had snapped and was laying across our driveway!
I called the electric company to report it. The strange thing was that we still had electricity... just no A/C. I decided to message my brother, who is an electrician in New Hampshire. I sent him photos of the line and he thought maybe it was the 220 line that was down. He had me check if my cook top and oven were working... they were dead too. He told us to shut everything in the house off because it could be trying to pull in more amperage than was available (or something like that!). We shut everything off except the refrigerator.
During the chaos of our electrical crisis, I never went out to bring the gallery "OPEN" flags in. Much to our delight, we had a customer come in at 7:00 pm. After wrapping his pots, Jeff directed him out of the driveway so that he wouldn't cross over the live wires. Thankfully he managed to avoid them coming in.
I am hoping that's all the excitement for the week. I will leave you with a couple of piggy banks that came out of the kiln last week. If you need a pig, I have quite a few in stock right now. Clicking on the photo takes you to the Etsy shop.
