Good morning. Today is gray and cool. Temps may get up as high as fifty later today. According to my phone app, we probably won't be seeing the sun again until next Monday. The good news is that the storm has gone by and we're okay.
We had a lot of rain and the wind was really perky, but we did not lose our electric power. Deanne lives a few minutes away, and her town lost the power for more than sixteen hours. We were very lucky.
This morning, there are a lot of school closings listed on the TV. All the towns and cities around here, including our town. Some got hit pretty hard from the storm, and some still don't have their electric power restored.
Folks, last night the unthinkable happened. I got to watch a program on TV for a whole hour, and not once did they mention anything about Medicare and it's new programs. Awesome!
I got an interesting piece of mail this week. You know the ad that wants you to buy insurance for $9.95 a month? Well, they sent me a list of their policy prices. You're not really going to get very much for your $9.95. I'll just show the figures for Age 75. Cost per month / Coverage
Female: $9.95 / $762 $49.95 / $3810 $89.55 / $6858 $119.40 / $9144
Male: $9.95 / $549 $49.95 / $2745 $89.55 / $4941 $119.40 / $6588
I wonder how many folks were shocked to find out how many $9.95 units they would have to buy every month in order to have any coverage at all.
Now for something light. I found this adorable image on the web and just had to share. I hope it brings you a giggle to start your day.
All I can say is Please, not my car! Now I'm off to enjoy some blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
