So we had HUGE wind and rain storm here in the Seattle area this weekend. We were without power for nearly 36 hours. The majority of those hours were during the night, and the other hours were quite gray and overcast so it was pretty dark. No painting, no reading. It's amazing how not being able to turn on a light, or make a cup of tea, or turn on the heat can really get depressing really fast.
When the power came back I was so happy. And it was sunny for the first time in forever! Still is. Hopefully I'll have time to take advantage of that and take a walk today.
