While all eyes were on Erika's path towards the East Coast, the Pacific Northwest decided to have a big storm of its own this weekend.
On Saturday we had 60 mph winds and several inches of rain - not unusual in winter, but record breaking for August. Our power was out for over fifteen hours, and every store in town was closed.
We decided to make the best of things and pretend like we were camping out. My husband cooked homemade pizza on the grill and popcorn over the propane stove. We played games and sang songs along with a battery operated radio - our kids thought turning the dial to find stations was hysterical and so much work. Sigh.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
