A good mom would have broken out the flashlights or the candles. A great mom would have fired up the generator. Well, I am neither of those. I guess that I am not ready for a emergency. So................ it looks like I need to stock up on some batteries, buy some flashlights that we can actually find, get candles, maybe look into getting a generator and fuel, and probably stock up on propane.
I did assure the kids that they would be having school. The schools have generators, they are better prepared then me. (please.... oh... please.... don't let them cancel school!)
I was thinking about the earthquake in Haiti while the power was out. I felt really ungrateful for what I have. I was having a pity party that I have no power while these folks pretty much have nothing. It kinda put having no power in perspective.
