Its been a rough weekend. The electricity went out on Friday. It’s Sunday and its still not back online.

By biggest worry is the cold – it got down to like 25 deg last night.

I got lucky yesterday – found a Coleman stove at Fred Meyers – I guess they are too complicated for the average layman. Its a hack, but you can make these run on regular gasoline. The only side effect is it smells like your old 1970 Plymouth Fury exhaust. Oh well – at least I got something to eat :).

Today I’m going to look for firewood, or failing that a bow saw to make some firewood (there’s lots of downed trees and branches nearby).

And for those who are curious – I’m writing this from work.


Last night after I went to sleep the power went out. The ups eventually died and my file server went offline.

Last I checked the power is still out :(. On the way into work I noticed a tree fell onto the Shell station down the road.

Still – wasn’t much rain, and asides from those two things I seem largely unaffected.
