Oh Dark Thirty
That's what time the power went out today. The remnants of Ike blew through last night around midnight and the result was about 37000 people without power, including us. I found out when the Wife woke me up this morning saying the power was out. Thankfully, I had my work laptop with a Verzion wireless card so I could get some news on the internet. I must say, the loss of power and a few downed trees was the worst of it for us. I really can't complain. We feared for a little while we'd lose some perishables in the fridge, but again, that's nothing compared to my pals down in the Gulf. So I count my blessings that all we got was a little inconvenience. And I continue to pray for all my pals out there that need it. You know who you are.
