Carol Perkins: When the lights go out

Previous Column: The Cart Thief

By Carol Perkins

If the electricity goes off at your mother's house and she depends on oxygen, somebody must know how to hook up the portable tank! I learned my lesson.

The first time it happened, the caregiver called. I dashed out, and neither of us was sure what to do. In seconds, another caregiver arrived early because she was afraid for my mother. Thank goodness she knew what to do, and I had a quick lesson.

A week later, during a storm warning, I feared the same might happen.

Since she and I aren't with the same electric company, I was afraid I wouldn't know if her electricity went out, so I called one of the police officers I knew and asked if he would text me if it did.

Fifteen minutes later, amid a terrible storm, he wrote, "It's out."
