Our Amish Experiment. . .


The Platt family was not made for life without electricity. 
48 hours without the power to refrigerate our food saw us throw out 118 food items.  It took eight garbage bags if you ever wondered.  Sad.
48 hours without power saw us play bingo, Rock 'em Sock 'em robots, Operation, and other games and puzzles for hours to fill the time.  That's all good but how much my kids missed the Wii was a frequent topic.
48 hours of trying to figure out other ways to get to watch DVD's, get a shower, open the garage door, etc. got old.  Boy did it.
We are grateful that we had far less damage than other places.  We are grateful that no one was injured in our neighborhood during the storm. We truly are grateful.
Just don't give us the Amish life again, AEP.  We're not ready for it.
