Default Power out-rant

I just went to the store yesterday and then this fast moving, huge storm came blowing threw the area lasted maybe 20 minutes and knocked down a ton of trees and our power went out a couple times yesterday.

Then it went out again last night and it isn't back on yet. The electric company is saying it might be several days before everyone has power again. So annoying for it to happen in the summer. At least in the winter, when it's cold outside I can put everything in the garage and it's ok.

Boo! I know what that's like... we had a pretty nasty storm last night and it knocked the power out this morning. I had to get ready for work with a flashlight. Aaaand we have an electric water heater. And it's 100 degrees outside. Awesome!

That really stinks!! Hope you get your power back on soon. It's TOO hot out to be without A/C!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
