With Tropical Storm Fay a little while ago we enjoyed/endured many hours without electricity. One day it was out from 2pm-10pm! Charles has a small generator from when he did new construction and so he plugged it in when the power still hadn't come back on so we could plug in the refrigerator and a crockpot to heat up some canned soup. We had dinner by the light of an oil lamp.
I think having no electricity can make you act a little crazy! ;)
Who says plastic spoons can't be fun? :)
It fell off before Charles could take the picture...
After we unplugged the crock pot Charles plugged in the tv and the kids watched the animated version of Ben Hur. We knew it was a bit risky to plug electronics into a generator but we figured our tv was already on it's last leg anyhoo and it was something fun to do in the dark with no air conditioning!
