The storms knocked out power and we came home to a dark house Wednesday night. Luckily I had just made burger patties the night before and I grilled them for dinner. We dined and read by candlelight and a camplight, odd that it was so quiet. I wasn’t taking chances Thursday. I had pork chops in the fridge and no idea when power would be restored, so I brought them and a crockpot to work, and made pulled pork during the day. We did have power back, but it was nice to have dinner ready quickly.
