The thunderstorm that rolled through at noon today and left us without any power for 4 hours did not dampen our spirits. We enjoyed our Independence Day holiday to the max because we spent the day with Stacey, Mike and our two granddaughters. Bob grilled hamburgers and hot dogs over a wood fire (after the rain stopped falling). We chose to have an indoor picnic, as temperatures quickly climbed from the upper 60s to the upper 90s after the thunderstorm. In addition to the hamburgers and hot dogs we enjoyed potato salad, baked beans, watermelon and, for dessert, ice cream sandwiches.
