1942

Life without power has become the norm for us over the last couple of weeks.  Blog posts are definitely a luxury item which we’ve had to do without.  It’s amazing how excited we get when the lights come on.  (Well except at 3:00 in the morning when all the lights you forgot to switch off come on). 
 We’ve been reading “The Moffats,” one of my favourite series of children’s books, by the glow of a kerosene lantern.  We got a chuckle the other night when one of the chapters described how to light a lantern.  “Hey we do that,” said John.  We also close the shutters on our windows, and use charcoal for cooking lunch, and buy vegetables from a boy on a bike, so the Moffats seem very much like us even though the books were written in 1942!
