One of the things we did for entertainment during the storm was play “99”.
Madeline did a lot of Sudoku puzzles, when she wasn’t “busy” taking care of her 3-month-old cousin, Paige. (As if anyone could get Paige out of Madeline’s arms!) Rafe & his 2-year-old cousin, Connor, did a lot of racing and stair sliding. I did some scrapbooking.
Someday my kids and my brother’s kids will be reminiscing about the Storm of ’07 and their big sleepover party at Grandma and Grandpa’s. Even though I’m sure we all drive each other crazy once in a while, memories like these make me glad we live in within a few miles of each other.
Now we’ll see if we get to do it all over again. An almost identical storm has begun here today. You could hear people today making plans for the weekend with the proviso, “If we have power.” Unfortunately there are still those that haven’t regained power since the first storm.
