When a big storm swept through our area several weeks ago, leaving thousands of people without electricity, we were briefly included in that number. Our power was off for almost exactly 48 hours. Several of our friends from church, who live further south than us, had no power for 5-7 days.
For us, it was a little bit like having a spontaneous camping trip. We quickly finished up the firepit that we had started forming and gathered wood and brush for our first fire in it.
He looks so big here. He loved the fire, of course. :)
We put together foil packets of ground meat and vegetables, cooked them in the fire, then ate out on the deck.
And then finished it off with s'mores. Might as well make it fun!
