Cleaning Out the Fridge

Last weekend my wife and I took our son to the beach for a well-earned 3-day trip. It was surprisingly relaxing, given our family's history of travel together, mostly because the hotel we were at had an awesome Parents' Night Out option on Saturday night, which allowed my wife and I to act like adults for a couple of hours and our son to be able to play with other kids. It was mos def a win-win.

Anyway, I say all this because while we were enjoying ourselves in paradise, mother nature was busy destroying our neighborhood back home. Our house was thankfully spared, but there was no less 10 gargantuan trees knocked down within three doors of ours, and the power was out for almost 3 days. Given that our house was spared and we were out of town the entire time the power was out, it was probably the least painful storm experience I've ever gone through.
