A wee power outage

We've had several brief but violent thundershowers in the past week or two. During the outbreak last night, we lost power for a couple of hours. As the Bug was going to bed, it started to get dark. We lit a bunch of candles, and it became quickly apparent how reliant we are on electricity! Joker and I ordered delivery (no cooking; we have electric appliances), and then practiced the luckily not-yet-forgotten Art of Conversation. When the electricity came back on, we turned all the lights off again, left the television off, and just enjoyed each other's company. What a pleasant evening!
