We had storms last night here in NC and it knocked the electricity out. Well, I had a very important meeting in which I was the main speaker and was scheduled for 8 am. The meeting was an hour away. I would have been late had it not been for our rooster who crowed at exactly 6 am and woke me up. He did not crow again until 7 am and woke my hubby up (he failed to get up when I tried to get him up) and he was on time for his meeting (that I had no idea about). Just one more advantage to having chickens!
