8:12am power out
3:23pm power on
Boy did it get chilling in here! And boring once my laptop battery died... But we survived! I got some excellent warm snuggles from Spencer and Wendy that helped me endure this hardship.
Actually, it wasn't so bad until 3pm when it didn't come on. I did find things to do -- although I couldn't do a couple of things because I hadn't prepared. I forgot a pattern I wanted was in the closet and the closet is dark without a light. Of course, the flashlight was dead. I got a bit worried about it not coming on tonight. I love my house, but it has almost no insulation. And I couldn't figure out what to feel the cats, since I need to grind chicken.
And now, off to a hot cup of cocoa and to grind the chicken...
