Out of the Blue

Yesterday I wrote about the postponement/cancellation of trick-or-treating in our area. Following that theme, today it seems only appropriate to mention that last night was supposed to be the beginning of the U.S. pro basketball season, except it was cancelled thanks to the ongoing NBA labor dispute. Congratulations to the millionaires and billionaires on each side of this dispute for their latest foot machine-gunning, as they continue to do as much damage as possible to the image of a sport that so recently experienced such huge success. Clown outfits for everyone!

On the brighter side of negotiations, I got a note from DirecTV saying they've come to a deal with News Corp, so I won't have to switch to cable to ensure continued access to some of my favorite things to watch on the telly: Giants games, Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Justified.

Didn't watch Archer until about 2 months ago, soaked up all the episodes up until the latest, I'm hooked, it has to be one of my favorite shows now.

I honestly have watched Archer Season 1 over a dozen times. It makes for a quick-and-easy marathon run since it's only 4 hours total.

Season 2 was good, though I still love the first one the most.

Where are you at kanniballl?

New Jersey, border of Union County and Morris County.

Still without power Thursday morning, though things are looking more promising. Most of the town is back now and areas close to my neighborhood are back up.

Still stinks though... I'm running low on clean clothes. The laundromat only got power back yesterday but the place was PACKED.

It's amazing how much the narration adds to the game. It seems like so small a thing.

So here we are, Wednesday morning and still no power or heat since Saturday morning.

This sucks. My only browsing is via work, nothing to do at night, and it's freezing cold. When it started, the hotels were all booked up... now I don't know if it's worth it to stay at one as I *hope* (or at least imagine) we'll get it back within a few days.

20+ years in this town, and this has never happened to our house. This sucks.

I wonder if the town will be restored by Friday's planned "Halloween" rain date?

I got home from work last night to find that power had finally returned. Judging from my clocks, I'd say I was without power for 73 hours, not bad considering the entire town and several neighboring towns were listed as 100% without power. It's not easy to fix either, as frequently the outages are on a street-by-street basis because so many trees came down. I could hear branches breaking every few minutes Saturday night.

Truthfully, I had it easy. I'm a single apartment dweller, so all I had to do was toss everything in the fridge and tough out the cold for a few days (I've decided to keep the beard). It was amusing when I had to open the windows yesterday to warm up the apartment.
