About 7:05 pm last night my lights went out for a second, then came back on and I heard a bang from across the neighborhood. Then they went out again. There were thunder storms in the area but nothing really close, so it was a surprise, really, we lost power.

Kevin was cool about the lights. Fern's iPod had power so he hung out in her room with the music and the battery speakers. Good thing she wasn't home.

There is something pleasant, comforting, about the quiet house, no droning TV, no humming AC compressor, and the porch door open with the breeze blowing the trees outside, no washing machine agitating, no dryer tumbling, no laundry getting done mere days before the kids go off to camp. Sheesh.

Hi Anne, thanks for stopping by my place.

A quiet house can be a very nice thing. And hurray for battery operated gizmos.

BTW, my brother has 2 boys, one with autism and one with Asberger's. That is a valiant row you hoe, my dear. My hat is off to you.
