Unfortunatly not too long after I started we did wind up loosing power. So I lit a candle and continued on making programs.
Wednesday afternoon is also when the calls started to come in that Thursday's flights into Louisiana were canceled. It took several phone calls to various airlines, but the end people had rescheduled to fly into Dallas or Lake Charles, and then planned on driving or flying into Baton Rouge on Friday.
After about an hour without power, with no idea when we'd be getting power back, we drove over to the boy's parents' house, who still had power. I beleive at this point Isaac had been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, but there still was quite a bit of wind and rain outside. We would have liked to wait until things died down a little more, but would rather leave while it was still light out, then drive in the dark. Surprisingly we were by no means the only car on the road. A lot of those were police cars, but most looked to be normal people like us.
My in-laws kept power throughout the night, through the entire storm even. And once there we played a few games of Settlers of Catan and had gumbo for dinner.
Has anyone else ever resorted to doing diys by candlelight? Or would you be willing to drive through a hurricane if it meant that you had access to electricity?
