  1. Sometimes not sleeping through the night is a good thing. Woke up at 2:45 a.m. and our power which had gone at 6:00 p.m. (thurnderstorm) wasn't back on. I couldn't go back to sleep and decided to check when the power company estimated the power would be back on and found out that they thought it was. Reported it was still out and got power back about 4:40 a.m. Unfortunately there is a line of storms heading our way, so it may not be on for that long.

    Also ... good morning.

  2. Ick, power outages. Worst we've had so far this year is 3-4 hours. At least your was in the evening/night.

    Also… Draft: DONE!!!! Off to the fermenter with it for a month. The last part of this one and much of the next are a little complex, and I've been having to think things through. Fortunately, a couple of "oh hey!" moments (not quite a Download from God) blossomed into what I've needed so far.

    As they used to say in the 70s, it's Miller time!

  3. Congratulations, Larry! Great news.

    Andi, I hope the power stays on through these storms. We are getting storms as well but so far no power problems - and I hope it stays that way!

  4. Well we didn't have any more storms but we lost power anyway ... in bright sunshine. Apparently an old tree fell across the road and hit the power line. The upside is that it didn't take the pole or even the line down. But the power is still out four hours later. Definitely thankful for the generator.

  5. Oooooooh, that is so soft and so pretty -- love it!

    Congrats on the draft Larry.

    Did you get power back Andi?

    1. Thanks. I love it when little drops hang on so delicately.

      Just the generator. Online says we'll have it back by 5 p.m. but it's also said 2:30 p.m. and "assessing damage" and last night they changed the repair time six times; so I'm not taking that estimate very seriously.

    2. I should be more trusting of my electrical overloads -- we got the power back at 4:40 p.m.

  6. Looks like our weather is headed to you folks east of us. Duck and cover.
