after I was dressed and ready to leave this morning, the power went out…

called Hydro with my cell because the house phone was dead… then I spent some time trying to decide whether to stay home or go to the office…

decided to head to work… on the way out I took a few pictures of the first morning glories… they seeded themselves from last year…

got into the garage and went to push the button to open the garage door… duh… maybe I wasn’t going to work, lol…

called my daughter and while she was on the phone I pulled the cord that released the motor from the door…

opened it and drove the car out… closed it but it wouldn’t lock… didn’t know what to do and it was late, so I left it unlocked…

colleagues suggested it would reset when the power came on…

got a call about noon from Hydro advising that it was back…

when I got home I manually opened it and put the car in… tried the button and the motor came on but the door didn’t do anything… tried opening it higher but that still didn’t work…

went across the lane and asked my neighbour for help… he came over and showed me how to hook the motor back to the door…

if I have to do this again, will likely need to put the ladder in the empty garage to get up high enough, lol…

now, if only I can remember what to do…
