Blogging in the dark

Saturday night there was a big storm and we were both secretly hoping the power would go out so we’d have an excuse to play board games by candlelight. It did go out for about 20 seconds – nothing like tonite’s much less convenient or fun power outage. We’ve fed the boy, done our bathroom stuff and even read by candlelight over the past 2 hours, and the power shows no signs of returning. We heard sirens nearby which likely means some poor shmuck drove into a hydro pole.
Fortunately we have the iPhone to provide us with communication, music and even blogging. Here’s hoping I don’t have to shower in the dark tomorrow morning!

One thought on “Blogging in the dark

  1. Just be glad that you still have running water when the power goes out! Those of us on wells lose our pumps when the power goes out. Going 4 days without power in the middle of February is not fun. I had to melt my frozen bottled water over a woodstove and shower at work.
