Breakfast by candlelight?

Friday, November 30, 2012

I woke up early this morning due to the sounds of wind and rain. I looked at the clock to see what time it was, but it was dark. The storm passing through had knocked out the electricity. Fortunately my phone had an alarm set, so I didn't need to worry about the clock radio waking me up in the morning. Well the phone alarm went off as expected and it was still dark. I grabbed a near by flashlight and went into the kitchen and turned on some battery operated candles my mother in law had given me for Christmas a couple of years ago. It was going to be Breakfast By Candlelight this morning!

I went to my phone to check some work and personal emails and was very surprised to see that wifi was working! I figured I would be on 4G due to the fact that the box that provides tv, phone and internet services was out!

Since I normally eat oatmeal for breakfast, I was contemplating which cold cereal I was going to have and then having to get ready for work in the dark. Then all of a sudden I hear several noises and the power was back on! I turned off all of the candles, prepared my oatmeal and had breakfast in normal lighting. It would have been fun having it by candlelight though. The storm is passing, but there is another headed through on Sunday, so maybe I will be having breakfast by candlelight that day!

    I loooove storms. But mostly on days when I don't have to go into work and when they don't knock out the power. And we don't even HAVE cold cereal in the house, so I would have had to settle for a pb&j by a flashlight with dying batteries.

    Those battery operated candles came in really handy for my family during Hurricane Sandy! I am glad your power came back fast!
