What to do when a hurricane knocks out the power:
Play Monopoly with the whole family
Finish knitting project
Finish hand sewing project
Take a walk and rejoice in the crisp, cool weather that blows in after a hurricane blows out
And, after eating mostly crackers and Lebanon bologna all day and wondering aloud how far we’d have to drive to find an open Cracker Barrel, (nursing mamas get hungry!) rejoice again when the power comes back on after only 14 hours!
Although I’m sure being without power would rapidly have lost its idyllic charm had it been much longer than a day, (especially because we have an electric well pump) this day made me feel extremely lucky to be surrounded by the family we have created and grateful that we were able to enjoy being unplugged, together.
