Little House in the Power Outage

We spent a rather wholesome evening reading and drawing by candlelight back in January during our 36-hour power outage. We were pretty proud of ourselves that first night, feeling that old pioneer spirit, hand-cranking the emergency radio and eating cold stuff from a can.

Turns out we're not as tough as we'd hoped, though, and by the end of day two we missed light switches and music and cold refrigerator food and internet access. Yeah, we know -- lame! But, hey, it didn't help that we'd returned from a ten-day trip the night before and we hadn't had the chance to unpack. All our luggage was splayed open throughout the house as we searched for stuff in the dark.
