Power outage

In parts of Waxhaw on Saturday evening, families were forced to spend more time together and just talk due to a power outage caused by downed trees. Our kids were at a sleepover and as everyone surely knows, you don't need power to have a fun sleepover.

For the rest of us, who may or may not have put on headlamps to pass the time as we demanded answers from our elected officials to no avail, we made do until ultimately going to bed. We woke up around 2am, meaning the power was out no more than 7 hours.

On a positive note, our area appears to have avoided the monstrous baseball-sized hail splashed on the tv news, which no doubt would've caused significant damage to area cars and structures.
