Sod It!

Still no flipping power. I really shouldn't have got my hopes up. We've had enough, and, rather than sit around and get more and more wound up about it we've booked a suite at The Woodlands Resort for the weekend. The power may well come back on tomorrow, but we won't care, because we'll be pushing Alasdair around some of the 145 miles of hiking trails, or enjoying the Forest Oasis Waterscape, whatever that is. All I know is they have poolside bar service for me and Alasdair and Nikki's booked in for a well deserved pedicure. With any luck the power will be back when we return on Sunday afternoon, but, if it's not, at least one third of us will have wonderfully sculpted toes to kick Centerpoint's arses with.

You need a mini-vacation with a pedicure and beer. You didn't pick a bad place either - loads more to do up there these days. And. . . I'm sure they have electricity.

Have a great weekend!

It may not surprise you to learn that I'm not really a sort of pedicure type of person, but hiking trails and pools with bars sounds right up my street. I'm dead jealous. Just hope that orange blob doesn't get ya.
Have fun.

Yep, I'd have done the same thing.

I can do you a nice little 50kVA generator which would be more than sufficient for your needs!

Thanks dude, but I reckon I could get buy with 8-12. Reckon you can lay your hands on one of them? Natural gas would be better, but I'll take what I can get if it's free.
