Out of the Blue

With things back to normal here at the Blue Tower, apparently we should consider ourselves lucky. According to the power company there are still customers in the dark, and the outage will extend into next week for some of them. It seems the tornado did more than knock down some trees into the overhead wires. Apparently a large number of poles themselves were broken or torn up, and replacing poles is a far more complicated task than repairing damaged wires. So it sucked being without power, but at this point we are also counting our blessings.

Blessed Round-up
