How did you spend the Great Ohio Blackout of 2008?



We sent our frozen meat and packets of breastmilk to a friend's house for the week. We ran an extension cord from over the neighbor's fence and under our kitchen door to make coffee and listen to NPR (since part of our street had power restored several days before ours).We spent the days creating art and politically-inspired crafts. We relaxed in the dim light and talked. And we gave our son baths by the light of electric duckies. video

p.s. Don't worry-- it wasn't really that dark during bathtime. The camera just didn't pick up the light very well.
