My Weekend Without Power
I wasn't feeling very good because of all the storms that were moving through, so I took a nap with Emily Saturday afternoon. We woke up when the fan in the bedroom stopped. Apparently there had been a major storm and we had lost power.
Where we live in WNC, we lose power frequently during the stormy season like this one. Usually the power is restored within a few hours. But not this weekend, we were without power until sometime Sunday afternoon.
On Saturday, we went to Petsmart, out to supper and then to Target to get out of the house. As we went home, we saw that houses in our neighborhood had power, but we were still without when we got home. We think that the outage was only a few houses.
The night was very long and no-one slept well. We were already planning on having a friend watch Emily so Todd and I could go to the movies. We needed to get out of the house anyway, so we continued with this plan.
Thank goodness, power was back by the time we got home, and stayed on until I was woken up at 6 am this morning to the power being out again! I woke up the hubby to report it (since the number was already saved in his phone) and I played a computer game to amuse Emily. Thankfully, the power came back on only an hour or so after we woke up.
