Two nights ago we lost power. We are not 100% certain why this was - it had been storming on and off all evening, but we ended up loosing power and our friends down the street didn't.
Needless to say, we grabbed the flashlight and lit some candles. Getting ready for bed with no power (and toting the candle around) reminded me briefly of growing up in Peru, when either the power towers would get blown up and therefore parts of the city end up with no power or scheduled power outages would be in effect due to electricity shortages. Back then, it was part of everyday life. Life had to go on (which involved doing homework and eating by candlelight... and not in the romantic sort of way), we couldn't stand around and wait for the power to come back on like we did the other night. Also, unlike the other night, when we lost power back in Peru we knew exactly what the reason was.
Pellet and Cali were quite confused... I wonder what was going through their little heads "if all lights are out, shouldn't we be sleeping? what's going on?" Here's a quick video!
