You Never Know What You've Got Until It's Gone

Such as electricity!

On Monday morning, there was a HUGE storm. Huge as in: it knocked off half a tree in my back yard. It blew over someone's shed/fence, and all the traffic lights were out.

Unfortunately for our family, it was worse. Because we don't have city water, we have a well, we rely on a pump to get our water for us. But the pump runs on electricity.
 here is a math equation for you.
No electricity = no pump.
No Pump = No water.
No Water x Two Toilets = A stinky house + No fun
No Electricity x Two toilets = (A Stinky House + No Fun)3

Do you get the idea?
I thought the math would get to you...

Anyway, we just got our power back at 11:00 last night... It was pretty awesome. (Especially being able to flush the toilets. That's amazing.)

I'll have some pictures of the wreckage in our backyard, later, but for now, let me leave you with this...

GuardStart = Swimming.
Swimming = Pool House.
Pool House = Hot Showers.
Hot Showers x No Water At Home = Amazingness.
GuardStart = Amazingness.
