32 Hours

Our power went out Tuesday night, just as I was putting Kai to bed. Unfortunately, it went out just before I would have shut the lights out in his room. And once he saw the lights flicker before all went dark, he was wide awake.

What happened in the ensuing 32 hours before the power came back on at about 5AM this morning? Sorry, you will have to wait for my column in the Patch next week to find out. In the meantime, check out the Patch for some photos of the damage. Thankfully, our house was safe, though our neighbors across the street are still without power and have huge trees down in their backyard.


  1. Ahh...I see why they call it the windy city! I had only experienced that extreme amount of wind once while I was living in was a hurricane.

    It must be so good having the power back on...having the AC on once being the one most missed of all... I would think.

  2. I would not want to experience a hurricane, though living in Hawaii wouldn't be too bad of a tradeoff.

    We are fortunate that the temperatures were unseasonably cool so we did not need the AC. If it were in the 90s like it was a couple weeks ago, we would have been very miserable.
