What do people do?

What do people do that don't believe in electricity? We spent only 4.5 hours without power this morning and I thought I was going to lose my mind. The kids were completely squirrely. Zac was going nuts. It wasn't good. We were getting ready to head out to someplace that had electricity, when it finally came back on. Having a child on oxygen doesn't make things any easier. Luckily we had lots of portable tanks!
The trees are completely iced over and we are still losing branches here and there. It was a snow day for Jack which means everyone is officially on winter break. Except Zac. We decided he is never truly on vacation unless we are out of the state.
We are looking forward to a productive weekend. Zac goes to Iowa tomorrow with some of the kids from school. Jack and Brooklyn have practice in the morning for the church program. My mom is coming to help out with keeping Olivia in the house. I'm going to clean and get ready for our first family Christmas celebration on Sunday with the Chatterton side. The holiday season is in full swing around here!

We would really be in trouble if we lost power. We don't have a wood stove, fireplace or keroscene heater. I worry about it every winter. Glad to hear your power is back.
