One Thursday earlier this month, the talk guys on the AM radio station I listen to were warning everyone about a huge windstorm coming in the afternoon. This seemed weird to me since everything outside looked so calm and beautiful at the time. Sure enough, around 3:30pm it started to get windy…and more windy…. It was so odd since it wasn't a storm that had high wind, it was JUST the high wind! So, we had an adventure that evening:
|the kids enjoying the wind|
|the trees, not so much|
|We had prepped the veggies already, so dinner was a snap.|
|soup simmering by candlelight|
It turned out to be a fun and peaceful experience. After dinner there were no dishes to clean (since we didn't want to waste water) so we all just gathered around the fire and read books. The night wasn't that cold so we didn't miss the heater, luckily. And the power turned back on at 7:30am the next morning, just in time for Marcus to go to work.
(Marcus did go out shopping the next day for a generator. It's waiting in our barn as I type, and Papa will come in a few days to help us hook it up. ;o) )
