With the power out, we spent the day taking a last load of Christmas decorations to the storage shed, cleaning out the garage and taking a load to the garbage transfer station. It is the first time since we started to decorate for the fall dinner party that we have been able to park in the garage [three months!].
In the afternoon, I watched the 49er versus Cardinals game on my iPad using my iPhone as a hotspot. The 49ers won their 10th straight game by the score of 38 to 13..
With the power still, we had an early dinner at Cafe Bernado. I had a Thai Noodle salad [Thin noodles, chicken, carrots, cucumbers, scallions, spicy peanut dressing].
Just as we were starting to settle in for a second night in the dark, the power came back on about 9:30 pm. This is the second time in two years that we have had an extended power outage. With hundreds of thousands without power in Northern California due to Saturday night's storm, I recognize that our experience wasn't unique.
