LIGHTS OUT..SUPPER IS FRIGGED

What a time for us to lose our power!

The chicken is nearly cooked, the vegetables peeled and just about ready to go into the pot, my Mac was doing an update and suddenly - blackness.

I have had the fire in all afternoon so it is warm, the rec room is lite-up with the warm glow of the wood burning, the crackle of the fire and the howling of the wind replaced the Batman game Liam was playing on the X-Box.

We are all sitting around with our Mac Air, iPads and iPhones waiting for the mights to come back on. The smell of supper permeating through-out the house, making us even more hungry.

The ironic part of all of this is that I have a reverse hook-up for a generator. A flip of the switch and the furnace will kick back-in, a few lights will come on and the stove will be baking that chicken. One little bitty problem. I never bought a generator! Every year, I think about, than pass on it!

Fail to plan, plan to fail!

Might be time to break down and pick up a generator.
