Day two of no power. x.x But we have the generator going. ^^ So glad we have it, it helps so much. I don't know what we'd do without it.
Maybe read by candle or something..... >> That's cool though.
But it gets dark at 4:30 here. XD And I mean DARK. Like I tested last night. I couldn't see my hand an inch from my face. And I'm kinda freaked out by the dark. XD But it was kinda cool. But anywho, still no power here. I think we saw the problem, a power pole snapped in two, it was coned and marked so they know about it, but I haven't seen anyone working on it yet. Our phone is now dead too.
This happens if the power is off too long. But the generator helps a ton, we got email at least. XD
Power is out at my brother's place too, and they don't have a fire stove.
We're worried about them, but can't call because the phones are out. Not sure if they have email either, right now. Hopefully this will all work out okay. These power outages are far spread in the northwest, and apparently two people we're killed by trees in the wind storm yesterday. Very sad. But I'm not too surprised that can happen. I've seen what a windstorm can do. x.x This one wasn't too bad at all. The ones last year blew trees over and destroyed long miles of lines. Supposedly the wind speeds were 100mph, which is a tornado, but one didn't touch down. But that was last year. This one broke lines and trees but not as many, at least around our area. Can't say for other towns or states. But it's weird, it seems late in the season for a wind storm.... They usually happen in the summer right? That's when the ones last year happened. And the ones last year, the people who live around here came and checked on us, and said in the 40 years of living here they never had a storm like that. We got 2 bad ones and a mild one or two last year. This year I think we've gotten 2 mild ones. Weird weather.
I hear the Earth is still wobbling on its axis from that melt down incident in Japan. I wonder if that has to do with it.... Also why did the news just abruptly stop talking about that meltdown when it happened? How is it now? I hear they are still trying to clean it.
Anyone know how it's going in the area over there?
Are you, have you, have you heard of, or been somewhere, with oddly bizarre weather in recent years? I kinda wonder if it's all over the globe with the odd weather.
