When life tries to take your pumpkins away, Spidey brings them back.
When my children have children I will tell them about Halloween 2011. It started snowing the afternoon of October 29. I laughed at all the people freaking out because I live in New England. It snows a lot every year. Sure it was early, but it wasn’t unheard of. Then we lost power. This was annoying but we cooked dinner on the outdoor grill and giggled about it. We went to sleep early. There was still no power Sunday morning so we decided to go out for breakfast. It was at this point that we realized this was actually a huge deal. The entire city had no power. The entire state was struggling. We had to go far afield to find a place open for breakfast and it was a 90 minute wait. Then we went to Barnes and Noble because books don’t require electricity. The store was full of no power refugees like us, many of whom had brought their laptops and were plugged in about the store. We went to the shoreline for dinner and went to bed early again.
