We think the power went out around 4 pm yesterday, during the height of the storms. We're not sure. That's just a guess.
All we know is that when Mr. Brice and I got home from work around 6:30, it was out. We waited around until almost 8 before going out to dinner, because we were convinced it would come back on at any moment.
It's still not on, and the electric company has deemed our neighborhood a "severe damage" zone. Their best estimate is 10 pm Friday night.
And crappy daughter that I am, I proceeded to call my mom and b!tch at her (yeah, like it's really her fault) about having no power. It wasn't until about 10 minutes after I hung up that I realized I forgot to wish her a happy birthday.
So Happy Birthday, Mom!!!!
