Thankfully I had a bad headache and came home early. I had just walked in the door and sat down when the power went out. Luckily for us the kids were at my parents still and they had power. So we had a nice quiet night of candle light, warm wine, canned oysters and crackers and star gazing. It was super hot that night and the next day. My husband is very proud of himself, we had a ton of bottled water, tons of batteries, tons of food...the only problem is the lock stuck on the garage door where the generator was so he had to break in the garage. It was hot and all we did was listen to the radio and nap. We got power back about 7pm on Friday night...we still have to boil water or use bottled.
