We had our first power outage and it's quite hard to describe (at least to city dwellers) how dark it is here when you don't have light. In the dead of night you can't see your hand in front of your face because there's no external sources of light anywhere nearby. You can see the glow of distant towns on the horizons but nothing like the permanent glow coming from a major city. (That's why we have a night light in the upstairs hall to get to the bathroom at night - but that just doesn't help when there's no power.) It was a short outage affecting only a small area and power was back on in just under two hours.
Ron has successfully complete the hallway framing job and I think he did very well for his first time. It looks quite professional and is a vast improvement. (Our motto is "It's better than what was there before!" for anything we do to the house. It makes us feel better, even if we don't do the most perfect job - not that this was one of those cases.)
