I’m On My Way To The Beach

Last night over 1,000 homes in South Orange County lost power in an "emergency power outage."  My home was included in the 1,000.  Power outages are something that happen to people who live in areas with weather, not something that happens here.  I found two scented candles and lit them.  I realized I need to buy flashlights and have working batteries in them.  I puzzled over what to do with myself alone and in the dark for hours.  (No wisecracks about that, m'kay?)

I read my Kindle which was fully charged.  I wondered about whether or not hours upon hours of no electricity meant I should throw everything in the fridge and freezer out or if things would stay "cold enough" …????  (Can one of you enlighten me on that because I might have killed off my family by feeding them breakfast today?)

I didn't write a blog post because, um, it was very dark.  And my laptop wouldn't work because our router was dead.

Maybe I could have written something really witty when the power finally came back on late at night.  But I was in a sleepy stupor, so I didn't.  (I was going to tell you about how The Torturer saw my ass yesterday.  Yes, he did!  I flashed my ass this time, can you believe it?)

I'll tell you about that next week, I suppose.  <blush>

Instead you get this random sleep-induced drivel.  

Fascinating, aren't I?

I will also (hopefully) have some other exciting news next week too.  Keep your fingers crossed, okay?

Today I'm playing hooky.  TR is arriving for the weekend by train this morning.  I'm going to pick her up at the train station and we're going to head to the beach.  The weather here is fantastic.  I can't wait to make the most of it.  Here are a few photos of where I'll be today …

    I reckon we only get a “power outage” once every 2-3 years. When it happens we are totally caught out, rummaging around in the dark trying to find a damn torch!

    I’ve had the fridge dilemna before and I was told to keep the door shut to hold the cold in, and it should stay for up to 6-8 hours depending on what’s in there. That’s what I HEARD. It’s been awhile so I’m not really sure, but is your family still alive? That could be the tell tale we need.
