11 Days

Eleven! 11 fricking days since our power went off last Friday. I reserve the right to include Friday as one of those days and you really don't want to start a semantic argument with me right now. 34% of Centerpoint's customers are still without power and the three of us are part of that 767,000. No one has power in our area, so hopefully they'll turn up one day and blitz the whole thing.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Kyle may form South of Puerto Rico in the next day or so. SciGuy says it's going North, which is usually good enough for me, but right now I'm feeling a little twitchy, so I'm keeping a close eye on it.

There's a sustained wind graph on that page that makes interesting reading. Nikki and I live at 29.66, -95.45, which puts us in or around the orange blob to the left of the eye's track. That may explain the 11 flipping days.

Cripes! Hurricanes, no power, and now you're being attacked by giant orange blobs. You guys really are having a hard time of it.

Bright side: as annoying as it is, you will have a pretty low electric bill for the month.

***don't hit me***

Yeah, the orange blobs are the worst. For sure.

We will, this month, yes. Guess who gets to pay for the repairs over the months and years to come?
