Wonderful to hear that everyone is okay.

I remember when Hurricane Hugo came through Charlotte, back in 89. My boys and I were living with my parents at the time, and we endured about a week without power. We were lucky, because my parents had a fireplace, which we used for cooking. It was in September, so it wasn't hot or cold outside, so the temperatures were good.

We played a lot of board games, and talked a lot.

When the power came back on, we were actually kinda disappointed. Everyone wandered off into their own electrical worlds after that. The boys were on the Nintendo, my parents were cooking, and glued to the tv, and I was busy washing clothes.
