Power outage

We were in school when the power went out this morning.  We didn't even notice, because we were involved in a project that didn't require electricity, and it's a bright, sunny day.  I was vaguely aware that the house seemed unusually quiet, but didn't give it any thought.  Sarah discovered at some point that the power was off, so we went into conservation mode. It was already starting to feel cold in here. 
 I wouldn't let anyone open the fridge, so we had jerky for lunch.
The freezer was off limits too, so Noah went outside to gather snow to use for ice. That let in a lot of cold air, so I told him no more trips outside either. It's amazing how so much changes without electricity, and all the things we take for granted. Thankfully it's back on now.
