Last night someone in Arizona cut a main power line, downing the power for all of southern California, the mexican border, and some of Arizona. Needless to say 1.4 million people were without power from about 4 p.m. until about 3 a.m. Also, our cell phones had little to no service all night. It turned out to be a way fun night though. Clint and I lit some candles and decided to camp out in the living room. Also, we had to come up with something for dinner. Lo and behold we have 5 boxes full of MRE's so I had an MRE for dinner and Clint had cereal to try to get rid of our milk (He has had way too many MRE's for a lifetime). It was my first time eating an MRE so it was really fun. Everything that came in my meal was veggie lasagna, applesauce, crackers and peanut butter, hazelnut hot chocolate, lemon poppyseed pound cake, and then stuff to season with. It was awesome to be able to have a hot meal in a blackout. We hungout and talked, watched FRIENDS on his ipod with chips and dip, and slept in the living room. It was a really fun night! Thankfully our power is on today..but it was fun to be disconnected from the world for the night.
