I was a little ahead of the game....I made soup and beer bread before the power went out.....gruyere and rosemary beer bread and green chili and pepper jack beer bread.
And as soon as the power went out....at 3:05 p.m. we made Hurricanes...with little ice :(
Before it got dark I watched my bottle tree gasp its last breath.
This is what it looked like in its healthier days.
Sunday morning we woke up to no power but no real damage at our house. Some of our neighbors were not as lucky. We lost some branches and there were a lot of leaves and twigs to be cleaned up but nothing fell on the house or the fence. We were lucky.
We made breakfast on the grill.
And then we waited...until Wednesday. The best part of a long-term power outage is this.
An awesomely clean refrigerator!!!!
