The weather has been wild lately. Are you one of the unlucky ones that have found yourself in a power outage in recent weeks? I am. We had an ice storm here which turned into 5 days without power or wifi and 3 days without cell service! It was rough, but we survived it.
Thankfully we have a fireplace, so we all drug mattresses and blankets out and had a family campout in the living room. Honestly, it was a wonderful bonding experience with the kids. That being said, we tend to be on the prepared side so we have several generators prepared for just this situation. We were able to plug our refrigerator and freezer in off and on to keep our food cold and safe. We were also able to plug in a lamp and the TV and DVD player, so we were able to watch some movies.
