power outage

the power here in town is/ was out for over 300,000 households following a wind storm on Sunday.
We're one of them...
Luckily my parents are not- so we're making a daily visit to get food, do laundry- or watch Super Friends. What oh what would we do with out our daily dosage of super heroes?

Last night we grilled out with Nick and Carrie. Tonight we may grill out again... or perhaps we'll head here to my parents house so that by the time dinner is cooked, we'll be able to see what we're eating.

The stores around here have no milk- their freezer and fridge sections are empty. I talked to a friend today who said that the gas stations by her have signs up that say 'no gas'!!

Matthew learned last night that candle wax is hot- and doesn't feel good on the skin. Luckily he's ok and so is the house- no fires. Just a scare.

We're ready for our power...
What do you do at home for fun- that requires no power?

Hi Leslie!

The storm aftermath is just crazy, huh? We're unaffected; however, most of our friends and family are without power or any phone coverage.

Thoughts on what to do with no electricity: build a fort, create pipe cleaner gizmos, make a collage of your favorite things from old magazines.....

Hope your power comes on soon!

Yes, indeed, the candle incident was very scary -- and it happened so quickly!! Shiloh was also very concerned...
