Outage

We had severe winds around the blue tower today as part of the heavy storms we've had in the area for the past few days. This knocked out the power this afternoon, as well as all cell phone service, so we are pretty cut off right now. I had to drive several miles to get a very spotty internet connection with my phone to be able to make this update. But I wanted to let you know that it's extremely unlikely there will be an update this evening. Fact is, from the carnage on the roads to get here, it's very possible this outage will last into tomorrow. It is a treepocalypse out there, with trees hanging on power lines all over the place. There's no sign of any repairs in our immediate area at this point, so they may be concentrating on higher priorities for now. Sorry about the downtime, just wanted to let you know what was up. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon enough.

I'm counting on two separate continents not going down at the same time. But if they do, the world has more important things to worry about than this one website.
But some of us still need Blue's News. [grin]

Are you sure it is not DJT?

Blue, please stay safe. If you're bored and safe, then take some pictures and videos to share with us later on.

I just love the idea of Blue navigating the city ruins in a tempest like Day 3 of The Last of Us 2, all so that he can get to an internet cafe with working signal so that he can post a story about how Star Citizen just added their latest creep creep feature for us to complain about.

Obviously take care, it's a shit show everywhere. But keep your head up and never forget to jest in the face of adversity. I've been going through my own hell for the past 2 weeks, but that's another story.

Hey Slick, hope everything turns quickly better for you in this weirdest of years.
Also best of luck to Blue and others in so inclement a weather.

Yeah it's been madness around here as well. Giant trees uprooted, falling on houses or power lines. In a miracle, my street only lost internet but not power. Yet according to facebook posts for my local town, so many people did lose power. I guess I got lucky. I ended up also using my phone as a mobile hot spot to continue to work throughout the day since internet was gone the entire day once it went out.

Gotta be very careful driving in those storms when passing under trees or around them. Never now when one might come down... Best not to leave your house unless you absolutely have to.

Also also... did anyone else see that recent Trump interview about the virus? I had my popcorn ready when it came in German news. Because you know it's gonna be comedy gold then.

Wouldn't you have to VPN out of Germany to see any Trump speech? I would have thought virtually all of his speeches would fall afoul of the German Strafgesetzbuch sections 90, 130, 140, 164, 185, and 187.

it is remarkably creepy that you just quoted rather fitting sections from the stbg. either way, i just wanted to let you know that america is great and your decisions are superb!
