Electricity and a Seven Month Old

Our power went out during a big thunderstorm on Wednesday night, just as Mark was reading "Trucks" to Laurel. No worries...we got out the candles and tried not to open the fridge at all. The next morning it was still out, so we went to Dunkin Donuts for coffee. By Thursday night, however, when it was still not on, we started to get a little frustrated. June in Pittsburgh is downright unpleasant without fans or air conditioning. Finally a crew came out in the middle of the night on Thursday and replaced a transformer at our pole. But when we got up Friday morning, our power still wasn't on. I brought out the Coleman stove and made coffee and blueberry pancakes on the porch. I won't talk about what happened next because it makes my blood pressure rise to unhealthy levels, but I will just say that AHS - you suck and Felix the Electrician- you rock. Our electricity finally came back on after almost three days (just in time for the county's latest tornado warning, so hopefully it won't go off again).

Here's what an almost 7 month old looks like during a lengthy power outage. Still super cute.

One good thing about being a vegetarian is that you don't have to throw a lot of meat away when your refrigerator goes off for three days. Aunt Mary
