On our way up to Circle Bar-B it was blowing thru the canyons.  When we got there the power was out.  No worries.  Dinner by candle light and a generator for the band.  Back in the day they did not have electricity and we found we really did not need it.

Everyone will remember this fondly, guaranteed. I was acting in a play up there years ago when the power went out; we took an intermission while the audience went to cars to grab flashlights or lanterns, we put a fire in the fireplace and carried on. To this day, it remains a memorable event partly because the audience became part of the production.

They WERE NOT without power. End of story. A generator supplies power, no matter what they used it for. There was power.

Candles were flameless. Generator for the band. There were battery or solar lanterns placed around. Circle Bar-B did an excellent job!

From the staff to the caterers to the guests, everyone coped with the lack of power and had a wonderful night. No one complained or suffered. It was a great party - Happy Birthday Shirley!

Generators-that's the way to cope...dinner by candlelight? That's a lot of candlelight lighting up the band...how many watts of candlelight is that? Definitely prepared to limit the "minor irritation".

Nice to hear that some people can cope with a minor irritation! Way to make lemonade out of lemons!
