I'm baaaaack!
And so is my power! OMG, I never realized how different life would be without it. I mean, you think of some things - TV, internet... but you don't think about how cold it gets in the winter at night (when you have electric heat), or how much more you have to tend the fire when it's not decorative, but necessary. Of course, we managed to get the inside of the living room up to a toasty 69 (4-5 feet from the fire) and 60 (15 feet from it), while the rest of the house stayed a bracing 48. And I managed to read almost an entire magazine by candlelight! I'm usually a quick reader, but give I wouldn't have been 200 years ago! Although maybe type was larger then? Or smaller to save paper? Hm...

Anyway... YAY, POWER!!!!

Current Location: the living room
I feel...: bouncy bouncy
Boppin' to...: the beautiful hum of power

OMG! You haven't had power this entire time?

I recorded BSG for you (and it was very very good - you need to catch up and fast), but I checked the sci-fi site and they are airing it again tonight at 11pm. So you should be able to catch it then. Let me know and if not I will send it your way! :)

Yeek, how long were you without power? What happened?

With the big windstorm in the Pacific Northwest, we lost power for 2 days. Temps into the upper 20's at night. Inside the house? 44 deg F. Brrrr!

Power came back on at 3 am this morning - thank GOD!!! I really appreciate modern conveniences right now...
