Out of the Blue

Not being one for cockamamie theories, I have not spent a lot of time planning about today being the end of the world. On the other hand, maybe I should have seen it as a sign of the apocalypse that Verizon worked out my FiOS issues yesterday. Anyway, amid heavy rain and high winds, the power is out here in the BlueTower, and what's worse, is I can't get online with FiOS even with my UPS, so apparently power is out a local substation. In more bad luck, my laptop was without a charge, but I've managed to fire it up using an inverter and a car jumper box with a battery in it for this makeshift update (I won't have access to the mail on my other machine until the power returns, so there may be some catching up to do after this). The one lucky turn is that I am managing to connect to an LTE tower right now, which you can't usually do around here. Perhaps another sign of the end of days. Anyway, I'm not sure how updating will go the rest of today if the power stays down, so we'll just have to play it by ear.
