a hurricane / tropical storm hits on a birthday and you loose electricity for 9 hours?
Play monopoly for 4.5 hours!!!
Then have the cake after dark so that it glows brighter!
Longest power outage we have ever had to deal with, but we made the best of it! We finally broke down and hooked the generator up after 7 hours because we were worried about the fridge and we let the kids plug in the t.v. and dvd player so they could watch Eclipse! I don't think this is a birthday that he will forget.
