Twelve Days of Power Outage…

A Little Candlelight Reading

It’s Day 13 and my fingers are crossed that the teams of lineman outside my house will actually finish the job today. I hope by tonight we are home in our dirty, cold home ready for the heat to re-warm and running a vacuum to remedy that dirty situation.

But for now, I’ve written a little song in honor of the last twelve days. I figure if the department stores can start playing Christmas music already, why can’t I mock only one song? I’m sure it won’t be the first, last or even close to best song inspired by Sandy, but here it has helped us get through a few of these days! Enjoy.

 

The Twelve Days of Power Outage

Lyrics by the Cristie and the King Family Singers. 

Sing to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas
