Lights Out

Our power went out on Sunday night, for about 2 hours. An SUV had crashed into a power pole, effectively blacking out our neighborhood. Apparently we live on the edge of some power grid, because the people across the street had power, but not us. We walked down and saw the wreck and so did our entire block it seemed. Fortunately for us, the power people were already there and working on getting our lights back on. We were baking cookies at the time and luckily they finished right as the power went out, so Nate had treats while we hung out in the dark. I did know where the flashlights and lantern were, but now I feel an urgency to get our 72 hour kits in order!
This is our kitchen during the blackout, don't worry, I'm not planning on becoming a professional photographer. It is hard to take pictures with the flash turned off.

Nate's favorite chocolate chip and butterscotch cookies that finished just in the nick of time!
