The first weekend in July brought a big storm to this area (and others). The wind was out of control. There were trees down everywhere. Hundreds of thousands had no electricity. This also coincided with a giant heat wave so the timing and inconvenience was ridiculous. We were lucky. Little Miss slept through the entire thing. Our power barely blinked. We did lose Internet briefly on and off, but we came out unscathed. The Inlaws lost power. Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law were in the same lucky position we were in. My sister may have lost power, but it was up and running the next day when we visited. My parents were out (and they live around the corner from my sister). So, Saturday, Little Miss had a poorly-attended birthday party to go to. She had a great time seeing some friends from school. Then, we all congregated at Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law's pool to try to beat the heat. It was a pleasant day full of pool time. After, Husband and I drove to check out my family's houses and then we did take out for dinner.
On Sunday, I don't think we did anything. I can't remember. I know I spent time on the phone to see how everyone fared. Oh, Husband lost his iPad. He discovered this midnight the night before after we finished running all around. Early Sunday, it turned out that the lifeguard found it at Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law's pool. So, we went back to collect that and ran some errands. After, we picked up some lunch and had some family nap time. It was fairly low key though full of stress nonetheless. We were all definitely ready to call an end to that weekend!
