Saturday night, Jimmy and I were enjoying our evening at our hideway in the Sierras.
Then the power went out.
Dinner was in the oven and only partially cooked. But being a resourceful couple, we were not detered. Jimmy broke out the propane stove and we continued cooking.
Points to remember:
-Propane heat is much hotter than you think. This little burner completely cooked the chicken pieces in this casserole w/in 5 minutes. It had been in the oven 40 minutes prior and the chicken was still pinkish when the power went out.
-Power outtages in the middle of a forest are excruciatingly quite.
-You really can't read by candle light.
-The battery in your laptop will inevitably be weak.
-10pm is a reasonable bedtime.
-Before going to bed, remember to turn off all the appliances/lights that were on otherwise you'll be rudely awakened.
