Tonight I got home, changed clothes, and turned on the oven to make dinner. Before it could even preheat the power went out. Luckily, it only stayed off for fifteen minutes, as compared to the three and four hour stretches we experienced over the weekend. The culprit? Frost. Or more accurately, freezing fog which created heavy layers of frost on everything, including the power lines.
Even the fence wires and posts are loaded with ice.
*Sigh* It is now three hours after I typed those last words, all of which were spent trying to entertain a four year old boy by candlelight. I'd best wrap this up while I still have juice. If you don't see much action around the blog for the next few days, assume that I am literally in the dark.
