Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Our power and cable were out from 2 - 8:30 AM. A drunk hit a mainline pole with his truck. So the storm was only really bad for him. A mere inconvenience for most of the rest of us. Mum was freaked out, of course but she's getting back to normal now. Damn weather terrorists, scaring the elderly like they do... even naming winter storms now to get betters ratings.

I waited for light, did my usual "storm stuff" at Mum's, cleared the snow from the garage door, had a bite, and headed back to Mum's to get the generator hooked up (big job). It's nineteen steps door-to-door. When I opened the door, the power was back on. >:-D

Must check the weather in Chicago... hope the Raps get away without delay.
