Well another storm this morning knocked out power at the hotel again, but it just came back on so we'll be able to sleep in conditioned air. Whew. We were supposed to do our home inspection for the new house today, but we couldn't because there wasn't any power to test the appliances, so we had to reschedule.
It's easy to get frustrated with delays, discomfort, and inconvenience, but just turning on the news reminds me that there are people in far worse circumstances than us. Fawzi Shobokshi, the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United Nations, is blabbering on accusing Israel of purposefully assaulting Lebanese civilians without even mentioning the endless terror attacks the Israelis have suffered. We're really blessed to be in middle America with no more worries than whether our wireless internet connection will work.
