Dept. of Weather


Books, Candles, and Hand Held  Fans

We've been without power for more than two hours now; I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't have a half cooked chicken dish sitting in the slow cooker, and if it wasn't 85-90 degrees outside now. We still have some cool, because we've pulled the curtains and some of the AC coolth remains, but neither Bob nor I do well with heat, so I'm rooting for ComEd to fix whatever transformer blew out with the intense storm that took down trees and, sadly, killed at least one person in the greater Chicago  area.

Hmm. I guess being without power for a measly 2.5 hours is no big thing, compared to at least one family's tragedy.

But I hope it's still OK for me to hope strongly for the return of power?

if not, we have lots of candles, and books. And if we get too hot, we can always head for a library or a restaurant.

Glad to hear it! There's nothing like the rumble of everything coming back on when power is restored.

...aaaand of course, I meant 1:40 a.m. Monday, not Tuesday. But yes, that rumble is wonderful after hours in the dark (and it was really dark; all the streetlights were out as well, and I told BB I began to understand why our ancestors were so afraid of the dark - it's a hell of a lot different than what we think of as "dark" when we live in a modern city.
