At 7:30 the candles were lit.

Ben helped… He thought the city was going to shut the power off at 8:30

Cody shut down the computer and sat with us in the living room.
He worked on his school project on the laptop (battery powered)… Even Earth Hour couldn’t stop him (that’s another story)

Benjamin laid on the couch and played on his iPod (battery powered)
Ken and I laid on the living room floor and fell asleep.
I was worried about the power surge at 9:30 when everything came back on but now I wonder how many adults did what we did.

We went straight to bed.
