No Power--Still Posting Duggar Updates

So close! Our power went out just as last night's episode of "19 Kids and Counting" was coming on. When our electricity is restored (hoping that will be sometime soon.) we will immediately watch the show and post a recap. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Can you imagine a power outage in a family the size of the Duggars? Jim Bob and Michelle have been there! In January 2009, they made it through a massive ice storm and nine-day power outage. (Sure hope we don't have to wait that long.) With all the damage that their area suffered, Jim Bob decided to invite Gil and Kelly Bates, owners of a tree-trimming service, and their then seventeen children to camp-out at the Duggar home. You can imagine how hectic things were with over forty people crammed into one house, but the Bates' tree-trimming skills were a blessing to Jim Bob and Michelle, as well as to many others in their area.

Did any of you have bad storms yesterday? What's the longest you have been without power?

we had bad hail last night sounded like it was gonna break the window but thankfully the power didn't go out. Where can I watch the Duggers online for free We've had to shut our tv off for a while to save money and I've already missed 3 episodes and I'm having trouble finding them online for free.

We had a few storms here, but none to severe. We didn't see the episode of the Duggars last night either, so I will be looking forward to a recap whenever you can get one up.

Hope you guys get power back soon. The longest we've been without is around 5 hrs. Not that long. My grandmother and great-grandmother lost it for five days in April though. :-/

Thanks to everyone for the prayers and well wishes! And thanks to the reader who posted that recap of last night's episode. When our electricity comes back, we will watch the show and add a few more things.

Thanks for being patient! :)

Hi Paula!

We have looked and looked but have been unable to find any sites that post the episodes for free. YouTube has quite a few, but they are usually posted several weeks after they air. Itunes and Amazon sell the episode for $1.99 each.

Blessings,
Lily and Ellie
