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.
