Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

The Night the Lights Went out in KC

Thursday, May 16, 2013

J. and I were out watering late last night when the neighborhood went dark.  I heard a pop and saw the back of our house go black.  No street lights, no nothing.  Do you know how disconcerting it is to be in the middle of the hood in a big city and it's pitch dark?  So I finished watering the new trees while J. called the power company and then we sat on the front porch and enjoyed the nice weather while we waited for the power to come back on.  Honestly, it was such a nice night that I was tempted to just go to bed and open up all the windows. 
So that kinda threw my idea for a blog post last night out the window. No power, no laptop. 

The power did come back on right before we were getting ready to go to bed and, by then, I was too tired to post.  While you're waiting for me to get my act post together today, how about having a laugh at something my sis-in-law sent along in email?

Can I get an Amen?!


  1. Love that sign! Hope the power outage wasn't due to any storms nearby!

  2. I love this sign and hope to have one of my own someday ;-) Glad the lights came back on! It's always a bit disconcerting when they go out, no matter how long it's for.
