And all is well! . Last night is a night that will stick in your mind as one of the most talked about Christmas Eve's ever for the City of Mountain Home.
We decided to take a ride one more time to see the Christmas Light Displays all across Mountain Home.
The first house was on our list of must see! The Roddins Christmas display. We took a turn onto S 5th W and drove up the street until we got to Chukar Circle and waited for a few cars to clear out so we could get our spot of looking at the Huge Christmas display.
Next we headed for N 10th E and headed down the street to venture into other Neighborhoods. We took a left onto 9th street and as we were making our way down the street we were thrown into darkness. We drove around a bit and discovered most of Mountain Home was having a black out.
We decide to head home and when we got home we had lights, every thing was the way we had left it. We felt very lucky that we were not like some who had no power, no lights, no heat. After about 5 minutes of being home, that changed very fast, our power went out too.
We got out flashlights and battery operated candles and got out the chips and dip and sat down for a night of enjoying each others company. Then my son remembered those pool lights we had bought the past summer. You turn them on and they change colors. We sat them around the kitchen area making the kitchen look very festive. We looked through the box of pool supplies and found some more lights however they needed to be in water for them to activate. We put them in the dogs water dishes and they lite up the whole area. The dogs weren't to thrilled about it but our cat "OJ" loved batting them around in the water bowls.
All and all we had a very enjoyable Christmas Eve with good entertainment and chit chat!
Thank you Idaho Power for coming out on a cold windy night to get the power back on for all of us. Thank you to all Law Enforcement Personal who were out there protecting our city during the black out! We thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of our hearts !
2014 will be a Christmas Eve we will always remember.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
