Ok, it's now Day 12 sans power at Casa Ingomar... I did want to go camping over Labor Day weekend, which we nixed because something else came up. So now, I guess I am getting my just desserts. Cooking outside is ok when I have the time and discovering the serenity of my backyard is a plus. Showering by candlelight isn't bad either; however, shaving your legs in the dark is a bit dangerous. According to CenterPoint, power should be restored by who-knows-when, possibly Halloween. So for now, I will continue to dress in the dark.
