Obviously I was MIA all weekend because our house was without electricity for about 40 hours. Our internet connection is still non-functional, so I’ll only be able to post from work until power comes back. My wife and I stayed warm with candles, and stayed busy doing yard work, wrapping presents, and playing our DS Lites (I had the foresight to charge them fully Thursday night before we lost power). I was able to keep our tropical fish alive by insulating their tank with towels and putting an oil lamp inside the stand underneath the tank.
Let’s hear your wild storm stories.
