Uh Oh No Power!

Our power went out during a storm a few weeks ago, and we were left in the cold and dark. WE Energies couldn't get us back online until the next day, so we had to make the best of it. At least it wasn't bitter cold yet--just a semi-cold November night.
We lit all the candles we could find, and pulled out all the flashlights as well. A fire was lit in the fireplace and I settled on the couch and read my book by candlelight. We were able to boil water for tea and make soup, as we do have a gas stove (thanks goodness!) so we had a little picnic in front of the fire.
By the morning our power was back on, but I enjoyed the evening in the dark.
I took a couple of pics just as dusk was settling.
