Northern Virginia has now survived an earthquake and hurricane in one week! Irene took our power for two days, but that's a given considering our tree heavy location back here in the country! We're giving serious thought to purchasing a generator due to our frequent power outages that come even in winter. Although I must admit, no electricity makes for interesting bonding times in our household. 

 This is the "I made it up pasta!" sausage, spinach, basil and tomatoes in a white wine sauce!

The glow sticks I forgot to pass out at his birthday party came in handy in the darkness!
