Lilly Pad Haven


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al

A little bit of an interesting day today. Early this morning we got to experience a “rolling” blackout. The electric went down as we were finishing an email. The email was sent and the OFM got busy going into winter boondock mode. It took about fifteen minutes and we were doing fine again. A walk over to the OFFICE got us the news about it being a blackout to last about thirty minutes. Check the internet for updates on it was my message from the OFFICE folks.

Back at the warm Castle we found out the area was an area designated to have rolling blackouts whenever the authorities thought it necessary. If a thirty minute blackout 2-3 times a day will keep the grid up and working it is fine with me.

We experienced a week of full grid failure down in Zapata Texas a couple of years ago and that winter event was not nice for those without boondock ability. For those of us with boondocking ability it was a minor inconvenience. At least we now know the local authorities are at least acknowledging the troubles and trying to handle it properly.

During the day we received a nice email of Christmas good wishes. It was very nice and whoever sent it without any identification, Thank You.

How about a new coloring to offset all the cold weather! Enjoy Lily Pad Haven,

We are still not getting above freezing here but in a couple of days we are promised tee shirt and shorts weather. We will be happy to enjoy it to the absolute limit of trying to have tooooo much fun.
