On Tuesday we drove to Bill's parent's house so we could borrow their generator. (Thanks Mom and Dad.) This made the next three days without power (and school) bearable. We were able to plug in the pellet stove, fridge, a lamp, the TV (no channels, but Xbox) and the computer. Life was good, even if we had to take 15 second, somewhat cool showers. Plus, Bill's Mom sent us home with a bunch of these.

You could say this was the closest I've been to camping.
On Wednesday Bill left for work, only to return 10 minutes later with this.
FYI, in case you're short on flashlights, lightsabers can do the trick.
Laundry, unloading the dishwasher, and vacuuming on my to-do list never sounded so good when I woke up this morning. As I listen to the sounds of chain saws in the distance, I will remember just how good I have it sitting here safe and warm with the family I love.
