This is a blog post about the night the power went out in the Morley home. It is not a blog post about how we spent the next seven hours playing games and laughing and learning that we don't need electricity to be happy. It is a blog post about the agony of trying to use the bathroom in the dark and the growing fear that we might freeze to death and the good fortune of a fully charged ipad. It's a blog post about how silly my family members look while wearing headlamps, and how I instagrammed lit candles and how moods soured with depleting phone batteries. So I guess it's a blog post about how I should have learned a lesson about love and togetherness but really I was super relieved when the power came back on.
