This is what my refrigerator looked like just a couple of hours ago. I just got finished emptying it and wiping it out. This is what was left after just over 48 hours without electricity.

Storms rolled through our area Thursday evening. I thought Hubby was watching the clouds since we were under a tornado warning — you know, to alert us to run to the basement. He was actually birding. I thought he was joking until the kids confirmed it.

Right after the power went out the man who was to sign and notarize our house refinancing documents arrived. We did it by candlelight and flashlight. Four candles and two flashlights to be exact. It took a little longer than normal.

We are thankful there was no damage around us (the trees that took down lines that we think affected us were more than a mile away), that the temperatures are reasonable, and that we have a house standing, but the kids and I are still glad the power is back on tonight. We aren't very good at roughing it. They rough it camping, but not at home. I don't rough well at all.

Glad your power is back on! I hope it wasn't too hot for you there. If that happened here we'd melt...literally! LOL

I was talking to my mom and the heat index was over 100 where she is...I'm sure it's as bad or worse for you. I think the highest we got was 83 (yesterday) and today wasn't quite as warm. The evenings are cool and we can sleep with the windows open.

Well, that's one way to get your frig cleaned!
I hate it when the power goes out - glad you don't have to rough it any more!

We are on the same wave length! I cleaned out my refrig, too...boy did it need it! ha.

And we just refinanced our home last month...what super great rates! I can't imagine going through that huge stack of papers and all of those signatures by candlelight! oh my. :)
