Well, the title says it all. We had a storm last night with extreme gale force winds and rain that was moving horizontally to the ground–hitting our windows like beebees. At around 10:30 pm the power went out. Luckily I had planned and had gotten all the candles and flashlights ready–so we merrily went to bed by candlelight. Then we woke up disoriented this morning and found out that school had been cancelled. Which was fine except for the fact that DH and I had planned on Girlfriend going to school today so we could clean and organize the house for my birthday party tomorrow. Sigh. So, we spent the day hanging out and then went over to a friend’s house just a few blocks away (they had power). Finally, the power went on at around 4:00 this afternoon. This is a big YAY because I can bake my birthday cake!!! (I need to bake my own cake because I am gluten intolerant.)
