Update: Blackout '08

Both Terry and I are surviving the blackout. I don't have power (I swear, I am the ONE block downtown that has no power), but Terry does, so I stop by my place to check on the cats and have otherwise been spending a lot of time at Terry's. He's been out of school for the past two days, so we've both gotten a lot of reading done (and I bought a Wii and I think Terry is now addicted!).

I DO have power at work (praise the Internets) but I doubt I'll be posting for the next couple of days because I have no access in the evening. I'm sure you will all live without my food stories.

I'd post some food-saving tips (you know, for all of us whose refrigerators haven't been on since Sunday), but I think that's moot, as most freezers keep things frozen for 48 hours. I guess I'll be cleaning out the fridge later this week!

How are you all faring (those of you who have net access, anyway!)?

… and here I thought *I* was the only one downtown (well, North Main/OTR area) without power. I had about $200 worth of frig/freezer goods that I moved to a friend's place. Now I have no excuse not to scrub down the frig interior.

Jane, you and I must live very close to one another. Everyone else has power!

I am at my parents' place. It's a blessing and a curse - I remember now why I am so glad I have my own place!

That said, I am very grateful for the electricity, the good food and the nice conversation (well, mostly nice.) My work is on hiatus, too, b/c of lack of electricity - I'm starting to feel some Cabin Fever!!

Drew-- my car was two behind one that got smashed by a skylight. Well, my LOANER car. But still.

Kate-- My mom has no electricity either, so we're both in the same boat. She said she was spending today cleaning out her yard. Her work (she's a nurse) had to send someone to pick her up-- no electricity equals car stuck in garage. Oops!

I think we grilled out enough of our frozen meat to feed an army! Guess who won't be eating out for a while. :)
