It’s a grand day a The Pines, folks.
Our electric service was connected today. Yep, the final castanets of The Extension Cord Mambo have sounded, and now we’re doing the Electric Slide. We’re all plugged into our very own electric meter.
Funny thing being, it’s been on for three hours, and the meter has yet to click even once. I’m guessing that because our fridge and lights are super RV efficient (evaporation fridge and 12v lights), we hardly use any power. Sort of a happy accident. Until we start running the electric heaters and the microwave, anyway.
Most of all, this all means convenience. I never thought I was much bothered by a lack of convenience, and perhaps I wasn’t. However, having the refrigerator on and the microwave working and not having a generator chugging or a cord running to my neighbor’s house, well … it’s just glorious. Heck, I can even use the crockpot if I want to!
Honestly, I feel real. Like we actually exist here.
