The power went out tonight
Windy, windy, windy.
We were driving home from a civic meeting tonight and many street lights were out. A tree had fallen onto someone's car. Blocks and blocks with no power.
When we arrived home, the whole neighborhood was in the dark.
Well, we got our little flashlights out of our cars and came inside. I found a candle and lit it, which helped in part of the house.
We realized then how attached we are to the TV. And the computers -- no WiFi. Hubs said if we opened the fridge all the cold would come out of it.
What to do? I thought I might be forced to read a book by flashlight, heaven forbid.
And then ..."Let There Be Light" (and there was light!)
