Our church responds when disasters strike. They also encourage members to be prepared. So today from the pulpit they announced a challenge to live without your home electricity for 24 hours.
The fridge/freezer were exceptions as well as medical devices that need electricity.
We just came back from a two day hike so the kids were thinking they were good. I explained that we would be participating. They were disappointed.
Hilarity has ensued. One kid talked to an old battery operated radio as if it was google home. “Radio, play some music.”
I think he heard static for the first time. He had to learn how to tune the radio.
Parenting has its adventures. This is going to be good.
