Wind and (No) Power
One of the downsides to living in the Pacific NorthWet is that we get wind storms. Not like tornados or hurricanes but still really annoying. Today we had one, a bit earlier than the norm but not too strong.

Like rats deserting a sinking ship, people started leaving work at about... oh... 2pm. The freeways were a disaster by 3:30.

I had a 4pm meeting and got home about 5:30. C and I took Morganator out to McDonald's -- his treat for being good in school. According to our UPS, the power went out within the next 5 to 10 minutes.


when we called, there were 100,000 out of power that were serviced by our power co.

Thankfully it came back on about 8:15 or I'd not be posting this :)

    I hate losing power. At least it was back on relatively quickly...

    I reached my goal for sven early and posted a virtual reward on my blog. Please take a peek Maura. I think you'll like it. If you're really good perhaps I could be persuaded to make you one ;) heheheh
