Flip the switch!

Yesterday a storm came through my region of the country leaving numerous downed trees and communities without power before it was quickly gone again. In Indiana some people even lost their lives when a concert stage collapsed. But for me and my neighborhood it was nothing more than an annoyance, 23 hours without modern conveniences just as a reminder that life after electricity is really going to suck.

We had a couple of blips in the power, but other than that we're doing OK. It could have been much worse.

We’ve had several power outages in the last 4-5 years, the longest being 5 days. Most were caused by the same tree that belongs to a neighbor. Normally utilities would just cut it back a little to keep it off the lines. Yesterday when they had to come back yet again they took a good hunk out of it. Hopefully that will end our problems for quite a while.
