Lights Out

Tuesday night in the midst of the storm, right in the middle of dinner, our power went out.
Heavy ice and fallen branches had brought down power lines all over the city.
We finished our dinner by candlelight.
The boys played checkers by flashlight.
We told ghost stories and made shadow puppets on the ceiling.
It was all fun and games until we woke up the next morning.
The house was freezing cold.
We left to go hang out at the science museum all day while we waited for the power to come back on.


  1. what a hard winter in ohio!! :(

    although ghost stories and shadow puppets on the ceiling don't sounds really too bad

  2. It has been a hard winter! I'm really hoping for an early spring. I'm tired of snow!
