Well, I went and did it. Jinxed myself.
The power went out a little after 6 pm last night and didn't come back on till a little after 5 am this morning. Needless to say we went to bed early. Reading by flashlight, as Melissa suggested yesterday, would have been nice, but the batteries were low and no replacements in sight. Need to stock up!
BUT...the good news is the storms have cleared out. Finally. It was a rough couple of days.
I'm scared of what's in my fridge and freezer now... Need to restock groceries too.
