We Got Da Power!!

After THREE days without power and temperatures in the teens, we were more than happy to sing this song when the lights came back on. We have gas logs in our fireplace and a gas cooktop. After the first day, we were able to snag a small generator which operated a space heater. By the third day, I couldn't feel the end of my nose or my toes.
I did take two pictures for posterity.

After the visit by Hurricane Ike in September, we couldn't believe that we were hit by bad weather. We also had an earthquake in our area last year. All we need is a tsunami and a volcanic eruption and we've run the gamut of natural disasters!

Back to playing - stay warm and safe!
