Amsterdam, March 2010
The power went out this morning. I guess it’s never going to stop raining or storming here. At least it was nice in February.
I saw my clock blinking so I got up and checked the real time and set my cellphone alarm.
I had the clock on the microwave set so that I knew the exact time by the minute that I needed to leave to catch my bus. This morning I was at a loss.
I guessed but guessed early and had to huddle under the shelter until the bus arrived.
I’ve reset it but I think it will be another couple trips before I have it perfected.
