Friday night there was a lightning show.
It was SPECTACULAR.
I have never seen anything like it. Ever.
And then the lights went out.
Today we awoke to still no power. Also, it is HOT...again. We managed to get some ice from a grocery store in the area before they sold out. When we realized that our freezer was thawing we called the missionaries across the street (who had power all along) and asked if we could please use their freezer.
We have had such a fun day! We've had no choice but to spend time together, and we've made the most of it. Ollie has been singing since he woke up this morning and we have played all day! The boys built a couch fort in the living room. We went to Sam's Club to eat their samples for lunch and walk their air conditioned aisles. We ate our fill of otter pops and grilled chicken kabobs and corn on the cob for dinner.
The power switched on again around 7:30 p.m. and it was all I could do to not turn on every appliance in the kitchen...just because I could!
