Flip that switch and what do you get?

So we lost power Thursday night. Good thing our telephones have alarm functions, or I would have missed work.

It's the rainy season here in the desert, and Austin has had some severe storms these last few days, including hail! Our palatial estate is one of the fifty to eighty thousand homes in the area now without power. Cat suffered at home Friday during the day, but neither of us wanted to spend another hot night with no power or internet or air conditioning. Reading with flashlights under the sheets is one thing, but this is ridiculous.

The power company said it could be as late as Saturday evening for us to regain power. We checked into a hotel for the night, right next to IHOP. (No, it's not the Dru-ry.)

No power, living in a hotel, watching bad television, eating from a quick pick-up run to the grocery- It's just like being home!
