An Ill Wind

Man-o-manischewitz, we've been having some mongo windstorms lately! Power's out at home, so I've been hanging out at the office. But I think I need to go now.

We had horrible winds today too. It's becoming my least favorite kind of weather. It's so deceptive. You look out the window, and it seems like a pretty day with bright blue skies. Then you go outside and you can hardly breathe, and you're crying from the dust in your eyes. And it always reminds me of the Virginia Tech shooting. The winds were so bad that day that the Lifeflight helicopters couldn't take off, and so some of the shooting victims didn't make it to the trauma center in time.

Oh, yikes - I don't think I ever heard that, about the Va Tech shootings!

I came home and tiptoed around with some candles. When I finally got upstairs, the Mr. (who had gone to bed) told me that he'd put fresh batteries in the little flashlight I keep at the bedside. Saved - I could actually read for a while.

It's bad when you're better off staying at work on a Friday. I hope you get your power back soon.

We experienced a heavy downpour midday just as I went out rather than the high winds you had. Fortunately, the rain had died down by the time I got to the grocery store; it would have been pretty miserable to haul all those groceries in while it was pouring.

I often end up working late on Friday, because I know I can stay up late when I get home, decompressing.

Yeah, I hate having to do the market run when it's wet out, too!

We're having such winds, too, but it's great because the temperature is finally hovering near zero-C, instead of being -15 to -300ºC like it's been for most of the month.

I simply don't think I could live that far north! You are a tough and hardy person!

Cheers! Too bad I can't type worth a darn. That's meant to be a minus thirty, not three-hundred — *dies* I'm not that tough or hardy.
