    Our power has been out for the last 4 or so hours, the power lines at the end of the street "fell off"! Lucky no one was hurt, but I didn't realise how heavily my life relies on electricity. No computer, so couldn't talk to you guys, couldn't sew (although it's just occurred to me I could have done some hand sewing), worst of all, no coffee! Couldn't even vacuum or do some washing, how bad is that!

    You never realize how much you depend on electricity til it's out. I know not being able to do house work hard, but not being able to sew is horrible. Tee Hee.

    I know how you felt! I had something like that happen too. I thought the power loss during the day wouldn't be too bad until I wanted to turn on some music while cleaning.... same thing!

    Exactly! lol

    I do have a hand sewing project, but I really wanted to work on my black and white blocks, which mean a sewing machine and definitely an iron. I was almost to the point of eyeing up the barbecue and trying to figure a way to drop my iron on the cook plate without the plastic melting! LOL

    Glad you have the power back.
    Hate when that happens. Our power and cable goes out ALL the time!
    I don't much mind the cable going out, I can find something to do, but when power is out, nothing can be done. BUT...I CAN make coffee! We have a gas stove, so I can manually light it and boil water, then run it thru the machine. :) :)

    Our power was out for a week one winter. I got pretty good at cooking in the insert in the fire place. A lot of grilled cheese sandwiches. Had a sandwich press for open fires, and old fashioned coffee pot we could sit on top of insert. All the good ole days. not! Love my coffee and can't do with for long. glad that I hand quilt at times like that.

    A week?!? Man, that would be difficult!

    We do have a gas stove but it seemed like far too much hard work to go and dig it out of the garage and hook it up.

    Has yours really just gone tlrnhi?? Sorry, but that's funny! LOL
