A Saturday without power.

We woke up this morning and still didn’t have any power. We walked Oscar and then headed off to find someplace with food and air conditioning. When we got to the end of the street, we got our first real glimpse of what knocked out our power last night. It was this huge tree limb that fell on the power lines…

We walked down to Second Place to hang out for a bit. We got some lunch at Second Place. Genifer got Second Place’s awesome Cuban sammich and I got the smoked pork belly lunch special from The Littlefield

And my pork belly was served with buttermilk biscuits, warm peach compote, and a Jalapeño buttermilk slaw!

We hung out at Second Place for a while, watched the USMNT play Panama in the Gold Cup and then came home to our house without power. Apparently, Duke Energy says power should be restored by noon tomorrow. Thankfully, it was a pretty comfortable evening that wasn’t too hot…

It’s weird and kind of spooky trying to navigate your house without lights…

UPDATE: After spending the night in our surprisingly cool second guest bedroom, we woke up at 6:30 Sunday morning with power! HOORAY FOR POWER! 😀❤️
