These are Lindsay's photos...she took advantage of absolutely no lights in our area. We don't have a lot of light pollution at night but the little we do have makes a huge difference.
The Milky Way was stunning last night...
I enjoyed holding my granddaughter and telling her all about God's creation and how He loves her so much. She fell asleep in my arms. That is pure delight.
"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You have visited him? Psalm 8:3-4
Because of the preparations we made for the storm, which we ended up not needing, we were prepared for the power outage last night.
We lit the oil lamps and a few candles, put gallon of drinking water in each bathroom for brushing teeth and washing faces.
Because of the beautiful cool weather, we were perfectly comfortable without air conditioning, and slept soundly until around 2:00 am when our power came back on. We turned off a few lights, and went back to sleep.
What a blessing that power outage was for us. We are hoping that those who might be with out power still due to the storm, have minimal inconvenience. Praying for those in Vermont with all the flooding there.
