When you live in the country and the power is out, sometimes one has to be resourceful.
Last night our area received 6 - 8 inches of rain between 11pm & 9am this morning. We woke to no electricity this morning. I was ever so thankful that today is my day off and I didn’t have to get ready for work. However, I still needed to get a few morning “chores” accomplished.
We do have a gas stove, so could light that and make breakfast. We opened the fridge really fast as to not let the cold out since we didn’t know how long we would be out and it was supposed to be in the 90’s today. We boiled water to make coffee and I fried up some eggs but DH decided he wanted toast as well. Hmmm…no electric toaster either. He was resourceful and grabbed a marshmallow fork from the closet.
Our electricity was only off 3 hours so we were lucky. It could have been all day like some other areas around us.
This is what the aftermath of all that rain looked like. Beautiful! We really needed the rain but maybe not quite so much at one time and it sounds like more thunderstorms and heavy rains are on the way tonight.
I just may be washing my hair in the rain again tomorrow morning.
