On Monday morning I was woken up by the power fading in and then coming back on about 3 or 4 times until it finally went out. This was about 6:30am. Shortly after it going out, E-Man starts SCREAMING! He notices it because he sleeps with a white noise machine. It wasn't until 2 something in the afternoon that we had power again.
Breakfast consisted of dry cereal as the milk was bad and I had planned on pancakes or waffles. It was a baseball hat kind of day since I had no hair dryer. It was a no TV kind of day which I enjoyed, but E-Man started suffering withdrawal. ;) We went to Arby's for lunch as I had no idea what to do about lunch - I should mention I went for groceries Monday evening so I had NOTHING prior to that. Naptime lasted a whole 40 minutes with wakings twice as he couldn't sleep without the white noise machine running.
When the power came back on there was much rejoicing.
The cause of the power outage was that there was extreme wind Sunday night. It caused quite a bit of damage and knocked a LOT of people out of power and phone service. The picture is of (I think) a phone line that was hanging down on our way to get lunch. You can see by the pole a line hanging down and then to the right is a tree snapped off and the rest of the tree is resting directly on the remaining lines. It's taken through my windshield at a stop sign in the rain which explains some of the quality issues.
