Anyway, the morning LJ post was lost, and the house was in darkness (and no computer!), so I just went out (heh- that means I was outed, too) and listen to the power-outing rain fall through the fog. I suppose I could have read something, but I don't like reading by candlelight. Abraham Lincoln used to read by candlelight, and look what became of him! Assassinated! I won't take that risk.
Now the power is back on, and I have to go around and plug in all the stuff I unplugged and set all the electric clocks to the (oh, crap, is it that late?) correct time.
I hate power outages.
