“Well, that was lame!

I'm fine, Mom and Dad are fine, the cat's fine, the house is fine. The storm missed us; all we got was a little bit of wind and rain. But we lost power. Like i said, lame! Literally. The power lines on our block are lame. The power cuts out with a stiff breeze, basically. Usually it only cuts out for a few seconds, not enough to interrupt the computer because i've got those UPSes, but enough to make me have to go and reset all the clocks. This time, however, the power went out around 11:47 last night, and it stayed out, and we don't know when it will be fixed because the repair crews are all busy with downed power lines in other parts of the city.

So. Our neighbours across the street didn't lose power. For them life will go on as normal; they can just pretend it was just a storm and get back to normal. We however will have to deal with no air conditioning, no computer, and a fridge full of food that is going to rot!

We would love them to come along and fix the power lines, take them down and replace them with working ones that don't do this, but they probably will never do that. Normally all they do is send a crew out to reset the circuit breaker, but like i said i don't know how long that will take.

So i'm fine but i'm going to be sitting here doing nothing and sweating for who knows how long. So anyway, that's all.”
