It's Raining, It's Snowing, It's Dark!

It rained all day on Sunday morning in Canton, GA. The rain had turned to snow by Sunday afternoon. This is exciting since we don't see much snow in Georgia and I have been missing it (sometimes) since we moved from Minnesota. It was great until about 4 hours later and our power went out about the time it was getting dark outside. So...what do you do when the power goes out? First, you realize how much you depend on it and then we decided to play cards with my grandson. GO FISH was his game of choice. He was having a great time and commented, "this is like camping inside." After a few rounds of GO FISH we all decided since there wasn't much to do and it was really hard to see by candlelight, that going to bed would be the best thing to do in this situation. Our power did finally arrive back on sometime during the night. This morning while writing this blog, I realized it’s hard to truly appreciate something until it’s gone. They always manage to get the electricity to come back on (thank goodness), but there are lots of things in life that can't be brought back after they are gone. Let's appreciate them.
