What To Do When You Don’t Have Power

We recently spent four full days without power, plus had another half day without power earlier the same week. No power is a problem. I have to admit it’s not as much of a problem for us as it is for some others, because we have a generator, but nonetheless, much of life is put on hold until the power comes back on. For example, we had no internet that whole time. I kind of thought that it was a nice break! But at the same time, I was in the midst of communicating with various people about something or other, and then all of the sudden we were without internet.

Anyway, we found (along with half of the rest of the town, who was also without power) a great place of entertainment–the library. They had power. They had internet. And, of course, they had books. We just browsed through the books and sat there and looked at picture books and read stories to each other. It was really fun!

Okay, I think both of these pictures are priceless, even if they were taken with my phone and not in the best of focus.

    What a creative way to handle power outage! Not sure what we would do for 4 whole days without power….hmmm that is something to ponder while I go do dishes…! We do get dependent on electricity!
