|Since we couldn't heat up any food, we ate watermelon. As I was cutting it up so we could eat it like civilized people, Kelson dug in to half of the watermelon with a spoon. We love watermelon! It tastes like summer.|

|Still, we were a little bit disappointed that we didn't get to take advantage of any of our hurricane preparations, so we ate dinner by lamplight anyway. In the photo it looks like we lit the lamp when it was broad daylight, but it was in fact dark.|

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who had much more devastating encounters with Irene.
