Happy Birthday to your DD, HJ!<br><br>
Sorry you didn't get good sleep, meri. I was awake at 3 and didn't go back to sleep, but the alarm goes off at 4, so I didn't lose much...<br><br>
It's snowing here at our house, we had about 1.5" when I left. Maybe a bit less.<br><br>
I got up just before 4, dressed, made coffee and oatmeal, woke up the SO. We were eating breakfast watching ABC's World News Now, when <i>bloop!</i> the power goes out. Sigh. So, we call the power company, and apparently we're the first to report it. We are asked to check our breakers <img alt="rolleyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif"> I know, they have to do that, and asked if our neighbors have power. My SO lets them know we can't see anyone from where we are. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I finish my oatmeal and coffee, and head out for work. About 2.5 miles down the road, they have power. They're probably with a different power company (there's a couple in the area) and there were no obvious signs of damage to the wires anywhere I traveled between my house and the first house showing signs of power. Probably the damage was in the other direction. I don't know if the power is back on yet or not. It's our first major power outage of the winter I think! That is a wonder right there. We usually have several over the course of a winter.<br><br>
I hope everyone has good days!
