Pioneer House: Austin

Last Thursday's storm knocked out our power with dinner on the table, dirty cookware in the kitchen, and laundry in the machine.

Flash to Monday, and we still weren't back on the grid.

After four days of Laura Ingells Wilder jokes, it got old. So did those dirty dishes that couldn't be washed because the sink disposal was full of veggie debris. (Fear of major clogs) Yes, I should be composting, and I'll start that, stat.

Finally, yesterday after 5 PM, we had lights. Only to find out that our AC is no longer cooling and the dishwasher is on the fritz. I fear it was hit by lightening, because it is dead-o.

However, this ain't New Orleans after Katrina, so we're counting our blessings.

We should have some good house news by the end of the week. I'll post more when we find out!
