Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. ~Chinese Proverb

Our power flickered out shortly after we woke up today. After about four hours, Scott ended up buying the last generator around for miles on his lunch break (we have a freezer full of meat and a refrigerator full of insulin). We spent the day at the pool, and Mary loves to perform, wherever she is~

Tonight we had Sam's baseball team party. It was a lot of fun, but our power was still not on when we returned home tonight. Lucky kids had a bath by candlelight~
Any time is a good time for a rousing rendition of Mary's favorite song~

Just before we had resigned ourselves to sleeping in the smothering, muggy heat for the night, our power kicked back on - 12+ hours later. I love modern life, especially when it's 90 degrees out.
