Ice Storm 2013: No Power
While I was in rural Georgia working in blue skies and sunshine, my husband was at home in Dallas during the ice storm that left us without power. He lit a fire and candles and gathered all the flashlights. I enjoy the rare nights without power, and I'm sorry I missed the adventure. The last time we were without power I thought it was so romantic to live like colonials.
Trigger found the best spot in the house:
Our power was turned back on within hours, but we have neighbors that still don't have power. When I arrived home from the airport the power was back on, but when I went out for groceries on Sunday the stores were starting to get empty.
Maybe we should start building a bunker in the back yard? We don't stockpile food, since we have grocery stores on every corner in Lakewood: Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Walmart Market, Super Walmart, Albertson's, Tom Thumb, Central Market, Target, Super Target, Aldi, Fiesta, Sunflower Market.
But when the supply chain is interrupted by an ice storm we have problems.
