About 11:30 pm Thanksgiving night I was sitting on the couch typing my Nano novel and John was working on something on HIS laptop.
Then the power went off.
My poor mother-in-law was stuck in a very dark dining room. John and I still had the lights of our laptops to see by (let's hear it for batteries). James grabbed a flashlight and rescued his grandma.
Turns out a wayward balloon hit a power line and you know the rest of the story.
Power came back around 3 AM.
So is this the start of the holiday season?
