... and the storm rolled in

DH said "The Weather Channel is showing storms headed this way" and less than five minutes later the wind kicked up and the windows rattled and wow - the storm blew in.
The lights flickered once, twice, three times - and the fourth time was the final time. Out. No power.
After the novelty wore off, after we sat on the porch until the mosquitos threatened to carry DH and DS2 away, boredom threatened. Battery powered laptop to the rescue! DH and the kiddos watched some Babylon 5 episodes, all cozy on the coach with the laptop on the coffee table.
Heaven forbid they should talk or play cards or do something without noise and motion.
Luckily the battery lasted; the power was out for about two hours.
