Just a little rain

This is what the night started looking like last night:

After a little while it turned into this:

We had quite a storm last night. We only lost power for about 30 seconds and then it was back on. Of course this time I was all prepared with flashlights and water poured into jugs etc.... Last time we lost power I wasn't prepared and it wasn't so fun.
The girls were scared but we finally got them all in bed sleeping. It was funny because the cable went funny so basically we couldn't watch tv and the internet wasn't working so we just sat there staring at each other. Mark suggested playing cards but it was almost 10:00 anyway so we just went to bed.
This morning it still wasn't working so after a call to the telephone company we had to shut everything down on the power board and then it rebooted and we're all up and running. YEAH!!!!!!
It probably would be good for me to go a couple days without the computer it's sad how much I rely on it (of course strictly for work-hee hee)

Well it's raining again right- now we need it and the grass is getting greener- the kids are quite happy about that- it's not so crunchy on their feet now. Maybe some day we'll have underground sprinkling and we won't have to worry about it so much.

Well we lost power again!!!ARRRRGGGHHHH To the west of us, there are lights all over but across the street to the east, it's all black. We really would like to get connected to the other side. Ours was gone from about 9:45 to 5:15 this morning. Me & Chelsea sat in her bed and played cards with our Coleman lantern.

I love the lightening picture! Our power only flickered a few times, but I lost the internet that time. I had to spend 1/2 hour with Charter getting it rebooted. I should probably go without it for a while too!
