Power to the people!

Yesterday morning at 11 we lost power. We didnt notice at first as we were busy building JD's Taj Mahal lego and with 6000 pieces its tricky to find the right one, so we were focused. Once we realized we had no power we decided to take a drive up to Clinton outlet mall for some shopping while we waited for them to sort it all out. But it turned out that wouldnt work as our car was stuck in the garage behind the electronic doors that were stuck on down. So we walked into town (fighting against the wind and rain) saw the second half of the Scotland-England game in Tigin's and then had lunch at Lucky's Burger & Malt diner.

Very full and very wet by the time we made it back to the apartment the garage door was up but we didnt have any power. So we headed north to Clinton and did some shopping in the wind and rain. We headed back in the evening driving through the wind and rain (yeah and thinking we probably shouldnt be on the road in that weather). Home at 10 pm. Still no power. Luckily have lots of candels and gas worked, so we had a cup of tea by candle light before heading to bed.

This morning more lego then out for breakfast. Turns out we arent the only ones without power and with the idea of going out for breakfast, so by lunch time we decided bruch was out and lunch was in. We nipped into Barnes & Noble to get a book on card games (we fancied some rummy by candle light) which I think was the guarantee that when we got back the power was back! I am now clean and warm. It is very nice.
