and blow out your power for 17 hours!
It's been SO windy here in MN for the last couple of days that last night our power went out around 10 pm. It just came back on now at 2:30 the next day.
Here in MN in late October it's COLD.... so all night we had no heat either. Brrrrr.
No lights, couldn't find a stinkin match in the entire house.....had to walk around in the pitch dark with Alex's Mickey Mouse flashlight looking for a match....just ONE match to light a candle....the flashlight is going very very dim.....after looking out in the garage and everywhere I could think of I found 4 matches. YAYYYYYY.
I don't mean to sound like a baby here, but THAT'S A LONG TIME WITHOUT POWER!
NO coffee????? Oh, man. NO computer???? major oh man!
You know how you hear that 'the silence is deafening'?? Well, it is. I'll tell you one of the weirdest things about me.....I have to sleep with LOTS of noise. I HAVE to have my blow dryer going on my bed, my sound machine going, AND a fan going in my room. And the really dumb part is that then I put ear plugs in!!! HA, that even sounds ridiculous to ME.
Anyway, I couldn't sleep AT ALL last night because the SILENCE was SO DEAFENING.
So anyways.....after my 17 hours w/o power, I'm totally rethinking my strategy of moving to the boonies and becoming a pioneer.
