We had a wind storm the last two days, it caused major troubles in our area. Downed power lines, downed trees, accidents and even brush fires. Power went out right as we were finishing up with dinner and my kids and I turned it into some fun. Though they kept trying to switch the lights on every few minutes. My youngest kept asking what didn’t work, which of course was everything but she kept asking.
“Does that mean the TV is not working?” Little DD
“How about the radio?” Little DD
“The fridge?” Little DD
“My light?” Little DD
“You need to fix that.” Little DD
I’m right on that kiddo, ha!
I lit some candles and we brought out the camping lanterns which can light up any room really well. Never be without some camping gear , it comes in handy in a flash!
While we did enjoy the camp-out in the living room my youngest DD was not too happy about the sounds the wind was making. It was a rough night. The trees were knocking on the house, the dogs were whining and windows rattled for hours. It got really bad late at night we would hear fire trucks and sirens and the some metal poles we had on our shed clattered to the ground causing an uproar with our dogs and the neighbors. It’s safe to say that in the dark, when you can’t see what is happening it makes every other sound that much more scary for the kids or even the dogs. Through that chaos though we did manage to have some fun.
As for the aftermath of the storm , my yard took a major hit. The wind just wrecked havoc all around. I’ll be spending most the weekend cleaning up . Somewhere under all these leaves is my garden 🙁
