My Mommy Thoughts During Stormageddon 2015


Is it just me or did that storm come out of nowhere? Fortunately it was gone almost as quickly as it arrived, but the aftermath definitely lasted a little longer. Here are a few of the things that were either said or thought during Stormageddon 2015:

Crap the electricity is out and we have shrimp in the freezer.

‘Screw the Milk Save the Seafood!’ should be the slogan for generators in the South

Will the electric cord reach from the coffee maker to the generator?

Crap, CCs is crowded when everyone is out of power.

No, kids, that leaf on the ground is NOT from a tree that fell through the house.

Aww man, guess I need to grab lunch since I can’t open the fridge until the generator is hooked up. 😉

Calories don’t count during the aftermath of a weather emergency, right?

Homework can only last as long as the sun is shining.

Honey, I am going to the store to get more wine.

Being without electricity does not automatically mean hanky panky time.

Now that the kids are in bed the quiet is so nice, but now all I hear is the running toilet and the alarm beeping.

Honey, add the toilet to the Honey-Do List.

I am taking this as dress rehearsal for Hurricane season, which is right around the corner. I just hope I won’t have to have these thoughts any time soon.

Did you survive the Stormageddon?
