“Ice fell from the sky all evening.
I finally retired at midnight and we lost power at two a.m.
I was standing in my son's room and a branch from the neighbors tree crashed down above his bedroom startling the shit out of me.
I was notified of our office power loss at zero-four-hundred and the broadcast close greeting came at zero-six. <lj user="galinda822"> called shortly after that to tell me that our secondary location had also lost power. So with almost no sleep and knowing that I'm going to have to go to work sometime today if they get power on, I got up dressing warmly and was unsuccessful in retrieving my gloves and ice scraper from inside my vehicle - the entire car was encased in ice under two-inches of snow which fell on top of that. I borrowed one from the neighbors to finally get it out and go both cars cleaned up and ready to go.
The neighbors and I cut up the branch which had fallen on the house. There was no damage.
We have a gas stove and though we can't use the oven because an electric ignition on it, we can still use the stovetop.
We're going to watch BSG tonight at galinda's. We'll see how it goes. I hope all of you guys are fairing far better than I.”

Sorry about the bad weather there. It was not that bad here, we actually had some chuncky snow but it is all gone now.

Please tell Paul to add me as a friend so I can comment on his journal and hurl insults at him.

Anyway - :-)

Hope you have a good day tomorow etc...

No worries. The only reaon I chose to Voice Post (as I mentioned within the Voice Post itself) is that we've lost power here in STL (along with half a million other people) and that my wife and I were making other plan to survive the storm (its now 46-degrees in the house) and the fear I felt from standing in my son's room at 0200 when a branch crashed down on the house above me. I was thinking of transcribing it for xanga when I got intermittant access to a terminal yesterday, but I didn't get enough time. Both my facilities were down until I was awaken this morning to get the A/C running at one site to cool all the computers which had come on suddenly this morning driving the temperature to well over 100-degrees. I'm hoping to join my family later for breakfast.

Thank you for your comment.

Re: Voice post

Sorry to hear that you have lost power. :-( I hope you all get through this in good standing and that none of you are worst for wear because of this storm. :-)

My prayers are with you and your family. As always.

*smiles* You would never be able to guess who I have laying between my arms as I'm typing this. *laughs*

My siamese cat, Suki. :-D

Your voice post is far better than the the writen post. You can hear the fear and concern in your voice and you don't get that with just the words. It's just not as real.

We always have something to do and thankfully, we usually have fun doing it.

It was great having you and the family over - reminded me of the great times we had last year.

Thank goodness we all survived the messy weather and electricity is restored!!!

It was a blast. The electricity should go off here more often.

3 power outages in less than 6 months is, believe it or not, very rare around here.

Nothing will ever top the fun we've had!!!
