First off let me say I am sorry for being so MIA yesterday and pretty much the entire weekend. Does it make it any more acceptable if I say that I had a good reason? As I type this we are in the 47th hour of no power or heat. Saturday night Seattle had a crazy wind storm. I woke up to no power, my sister woke up to a tree on both of her cars, yes plural, cars! Thankfully we are all okay and nobody was actually hurt. Also on the plus side my sister’s house still has power and we are having a sleepover of sorts tonight, more along the lines of completely taking over her guest bedrooms. April, I love you and promise I will make the beds when we leave! I can now justify my procrastination over the weekend and the fact that I never made it to Costco as being a good thing since our entire fridge has now become best friends with the garbage can.
…and on a side (venting) note: (please don’t hate me for this) to the girl on Twitter who never lost power but thinks that the Comcast cable node that kept her from football Sunday should have taken priority over restoring power and heat to the over 120,000 people who weren’t so fortunate as to have been unaffected by the storm, please think next time before you tweet! I would gladly trade no cable for power and heat! Here’s to hoping we are back up and running by tomorrow hashtag: power outages suck.
