So there was a big storm. And the power went out. And I wasn’t actually able to post on Saturday, 5 January. But I did write a blog entry on the back of some pages from my “Stuff on My Cat” calendar, and I did take pictures. So enjoy.
First, the blog entry above, which I wrote in the morning. Then, I cruised downtown to check out the damage…
Lots of downed lines.
Later adventures in town yielded a fiesta of downed lines. Everywhere.
I also snapped a neighbor’s newspaper:
Here’s a downed tree, by the Guest House. It was at this point that I noticed that downtown had power, and I started to feel a bit irked, because I did not.
The Skunk Train’s sign fell down.
I wandered around town for awhile, noting that all systems appeared to be go and hoping that my power had gone on in my absence. This turned out not to be the case, and after sulking at home for a few hours, I went back out to Headlands, where I bitched and moaned about not having power, and then I left and got some delicious food at the Bistro. And then I went to visit friends who live a block away, and do have power. I skulked at their house as late as I decently could and then I went home to my freezing cold house and set up for bed:
I hoped the power would be on in the morrow.
