Dark Interlude

The power was out for almost seven hours. Probably a tree went down and took a power line with it. That's what happens when typhoons barge into the temperate zone. So far there's been surprisingly little rain here, but the main part of the storm is supposed to arrive tomorrow. I hope we've already had the worst of the wind, as I didn't enjoy cooking dinner by candle light, or getting cold because the gas furnace doesn't work without its electric fan, and more wind increases the likelihood of another power outage. I don't want to see my computer screen to go blank again.

I think the whole town was outed for a while, as I saw no sky glow anywhere nearby when night fell. I finally saw glowing to the west after ten o'clock. Of course this was the probably last neighborhood to have power restored. Now I can get a shower as soon as the bathroom warms up. The oddest thing is that it's supposed to be in the mid-70s again by Wednesday. Stupid typhoon.
