We had a really bad storm Tuesday night and it knocked our power out and it's still out. The power company said it might be the weekend before we have power. I guess the storm really damaged the lines we use bad. My husband went last night and bought us a generator so we can run the refrigerator and water heater so atleast we won't lose our food and we can take hot showers. We were contemplating going to a hotel but with 3 kids and 3 dogs that is so hard to do plus the money we would spend is close to what we spent on the generator.

Thankfully it's not been that hot so not having an air conditioner has not been that bad. I'm praying that they get it on sooner. I've never been so thankful that I breast feed. I can't imagine having to get up in the middle of the night and trying to warm formula with no power.

Wow! It's STILL out? I remember when the power went out here for 5 days a week before Christmas and it was Freezing and DS1 was only 3 years old and we got really sick from being so cold and it was AWFUL. I'm glad it's at least summer for you and you have the generator for the little stuff. I hope the power comes back on soon!

Wow scary that it could be out for so long. I'm glad you guys were able to get a generator. I feel bad for any families that have to live without power in your area. Hang in there.

Power is back on. It came back on around 7:00 pm last night so it was out for about 48 hours. It was hard but I'm glad it's over and we have the generator if it ever goes out again.
