When your power goes out...

What do you do? Mine went out tonight and thank goodness my boyfriend had power! We don't live super close though so I will have no idea if it comes back on tonight or not.

How do you handle it when your power goes out? Stay and light candles? Do you have a generator? Stay at someones house?

    Flashlights, candles....thankfully it hasn't really gone out for long since 2011 and even then it was only a few hours.

    Definitely! I know the first summer we were in this house the power went out several times and we wondered if it was going to be like that all the time. Thankfully it was just that year.

      We have a generator for emergencies. We lost power about 8 months ago when the transformer in our street blew up. We ended up cooking our dinner on the camp stove by head lamps and we used our hunting lantern to light the table. It was actually relaxing. The only downside was James was 4 months old and our house got cold.
