We lost power around 400 today, just as I ended my work day. There was a torrential downpour and then – POOF – everything shut off. We threw open the blinds and curtains, enjoyed a couple hours of daylight, and grilled swordfish and Brussels sprouts on the grill outside for dinner.
It finally became dark enough that it was time to light the candles and start a fire in the fireplace. I’ll open a bottle of red wine, curl up with the dogs in blankets on the sofa, listen to music on one of our devices, and try to remember why losing power is so awful.
