A Hurricane of Events

This weekend was nothing short of eventful. This is how it went.... 


*I went to Cape Cod for Youth Conference. It got shortened because of the storm but beautiful! 
*Hurricane Irene (more like tropical storm) came and left us with no power for 48 hours. I am not complaining because a lot of our friends are still out of power and will be for another 2-3 days. 

*We rented 4 movies on Saturday night thinking we wouldn't loose power until late Sunday. Only had a chance to watch one. 
*Church was cancelled. So I didn't have to teach.

*Had about 12 people shower at our place. Great (and only) reason to be on city water. We never lost it. 
*We bought a grill and stewed over it's $17 price tag. But it turned out to be the best $17 we've spent in a while because I've never cooked so good. 
*Loved hosting friends for lunch/dinner and playing a little Rummikub! 
*We had some serious cabin fever and were at each other's throats for most of one day. 
*Our house almost burned to the ground once the power came back on. A burner (that we NEVER use) was turned on where my Le Crueset pot sits and turned red hot and the green beans I set out started to cook. Thankfully the paper towels that were hanging just above the burner and the paper plates that were ON the next burner didn't catch on fire. 
*Gracie had lots of little kids around to love. 
*First day of school was postponed a day because of power outages. 


We feel super blessed our house didn't flood, a tree didn't fall on our house and we have great friends to enjoy the storm of the century with...
