Last night we lost power for a while. So we used the lantern to light up our family game of Trouble. Then my hubby says he thinks the Ice Cream is getting soft & we made sundaes! :p When things slowed down a bit, we sat out on the porch for fresh air & wrapped up the eve. by putting a DVD in hubby's lap top. It really wasn't too bad & I think the kids will remember it fondly! :) So what do you ladies do to keep you all sane when the power goes out?

Our power cuts usually don't last very long. The last time it went off for a long period was a few summers ago when a transformer blew just after the dinner period. We live on a circle and the transformer is in a pit on one of my neighbour's driveway, so all the neighbour's sat outside socialising and watching the hydro crew working, while all the kids played. They had a great time because they were not allowed out after dark, and with the electricity off, it was REALLY dark lol.
The time before that was the big one that hit the entire eastern seaboard except for Quebec, so we went to stay with my parents in Montreal.
