FINALLY! FINALLY! FINALLY! 5 days without power and I come home from getting the kids from school and there is power!! After I had just spent the morning transferring all of my frozen/cold food over to my in-laws house...Oh well, now I can really clean both fridges before bringing the stuff back over tonight!

You just don't know how much you miss HOT water until you don't have it. The electric I was doing fine without, it was the hot water that was sucking to be without. Next house won't be all electric that's for sure! I can vacuum my house now, instead of on my hands and knees picking up crumbs and such...crazy, I know!

The generator just finally died for good last night, most likely. We were all ready to be transients for the weekend. But the electric powers that be decided otherwise. Now let's hope it stays on for good and it's not just a teaser!

Yeah! I can't imagine you made it 5days...I would have definitely had to find somewhere to stay!

WOOT! WOOT!!! I'm going nuts only after a few hours with no electric, and NO HOT WATER to boot! SUCKS!!!

BTW- A broom works better when you can't use the vacuum!!!

No whammies, no whammies, no whammies... LIGHT!!!!

During the April ice storms in Iowa a few years ago, we had no power for a few days and it SUCKED ROYALLY.

So glad to hear you're back :)
