At 9:59 this morning, my hall light flickered on and I heard the refrigerator whirr to life. I stared at the hall light, closed my eyes, and opened them again, fearful that I’d hallucinated the whole scene, or running up and down the hall the night before shouting, “lumos!” had actually worked.
I closed my eyes and opened them again. Yes, the hall light was on. I HAD POWER! Air conditioning, hot water, and a refrigerator that was cold! I will never take them for granted again!
I did a load of laundry, went to the grocery store (and bought milk… cheese… eggs!) and cleaned up the house. I took a hot shower and no longer have the Hair of No Voltage.
