Thursday night the 5th we had a wicked storm that caused massive power outages around here (that are still being rectified in some areas), including to us. Many, many trees were down or highly damaged. Here is how we coped:
Honest, I did! I also figured that the last time you saw me cook on this burner on the barbecue on the 4th of July, I showed FRENCH FRIES, so I had better show the HEALTHY STUFF. Life is all about balance, you know!
Molly was unscathed by the storm, but enjoyed the rest of the Hamburger Helper! That made her night! As for us, Dad and I went out later to to replenish our supply of D and C batteries, and most of the rest of Arlington had power! Ours remained out for about 6 hours, and in that time, Perris reminded me of his Temple Recommend Renewal that night at the Stake Center. It was 9:00 when we left for that with the power still out, but
by the time we returned home at 10:00 p.m., they were on and your father was waiting for us. He said the lights had been on for about 1/2 hour by the time we got back. It was nice to get back to power, and I was grateful that I had an alternate cooking source that night, even though it was in the rain!
