A couple weekends ago, we celebrated Timothy's 18th birthday! Most birthdays in our family have been fairly uneventful, but this was one birthday which will be long remembered.
On the afternoon of April 16th, a tornado passed through our area with high winds and pouring buckets of rain. Shortly before we were to put the birthday dinner in the oven around 4:00, the power went out and did not come back on until shortly after 8.
Seeing that birthday dinner was already out on the counter, and parts of it were in the oven, we decided to go ahead and have a "midnight feast".

And guess what? Dinner was done in less than an hour and the microwave clock read 8:52 pm as we sat down to dinner.
